Delicious Spanish Sardines Pasta

"Turn a fairly boring can of sardines into a nutritious and very tasty meal with this budget-friendly Spanish sardines pasta recipe. This pasta salad dish is undoubtedly one of the quickest and simplest pasta recipes you will ever make. It is very likely you'll have if not all, at least 80% of the ingredients already in your pantry. This recipe is my go-to work from home lunch, such a saviour. A superb simple 15 minute recipe for Spanish sardines pasta. Pasta Penne tossed with tinned sardines, fresh herbs, rucola or rocket salad, tomato, lemon, avocado. It makes the perfect lunch, picnic or potluck. "


Preparation Time10 min

Cooking Time10 min

Cooking MethodCasserole, Slow Cooker


  • 300 g pasta (uncooked weight)
  • 2 cans Spanish sardines
  • 4-5 small sweet peppers
  • 200 g sweetcorn
  • 200 g cucumber
  • 10 medium radish
  • 12 green olives
  • 100 g rocket salad
  • 15 sprigs parsley
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 medium lemon juice and zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chilli flakes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (optional) *
  1. In a larger pot, add water, bring to boil, add the pasta penne and cook as per package instructions. When finished rinse with cold water so pasta doesn't cook any further -we need it al dente.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, chop, cut or shred the ingredients as desired.

  3. When the pasta is ready add to a large bowl, add all the chopped, diced or shredded ingredients, add the Spanish sardines and mix.

  4. Add the roughly chopped rocket salad and the parsley, the lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil, a generous pinch of red chilli flakes or cayenne pepper, season with some sea salt and freshly crushed black pepper. Mix again and serve.
