4 oz Whole Wheat Penne Pasta
1 can Diced Tomatoes
1 can Bumblebee tuna Sardines packed in water and drained
1 clove garlic finely minced
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp lemon pepper (see note 1)
1/2 tsp garam masala (see note 2)
1/4 tsp crushed red chili flakes
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
Place the tomatoes in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, bring to just a simmer.
Add garlic, oregano, thyme, lemon pepper, garam masala, and chili flakes. Stir to combine.
Carefully place sardines in the sauce and allow to simmer several minutes until sauce has reduced slightly (about 7-10 minutes) stir very gently, being careful not to break the sardines up too much.
Combine pasta & sauce, tosing to combine. Sprinkle with flat leaf parsley and serve.
Note 1: If you don't have lemon pepper use 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/2 tsp lemon zest
Note 2: Garam Masala is a common Indian spice mixture, if you don't have it you can look up recipes for it on the internet (there are many different combinations) or omit it, just add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg for added sweetness.
Number of Servings: 2
