  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 T capers, drained
  • 2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 85 g raisins
  • 50 g pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 x 106 g cans Woolworths Sild sardines, drained
  • 400 g Woolworths fresh or dried fettucine pasta, cooked al dente
  • Woolworths De Rushca extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large pan over a high heat and fry the capers until crispy.

Add the tomatoes, raisins and pine nuts and cook for a further 2 minutes. Carefully add the sardines.

Add the pasta and a ladle of the cooking water.

Season to taste and drizzle with olive oil to serve.

Cook's note: Pasta con le sarde – pasta with sardines – is the national dish of Sicily. It’s also a rather inspired midweek meal.
