Caramelized Fennel, Celery, and Sardine Pasta

This version of pasta con le sarde, a heart-healthy Sicilian classic, uses tinned sardines rather than fresh, cutting down on prep time. Sardine bones, softened during canning, are barely noticeable -- and full of calcium.

Cook's Notes

If whole-wheat pasta is a tough sell in your house, try a multigrain brand.

    We love sardines, and this was a perfect way to enjoy them in something other than salad. This is a satisfying, healthy, and simple weeknight recipe. Great way to get omega 3s. I used garlic infused olive oil instead of sautéing garlic with the fennel and celery, but it was still very tasty.
