Ingredients

  • 1 pound pasta
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can sardines, without bones, in oil, drained
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 8 ounces frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
  • coarse salt and pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese

Preparation

Preparation

1 Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and reserve about 1 cup of the pasta water.
2 In a 14-inch skillet, heat 1/4 cup oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds until aromatic.
3 Add the sardines to the skillet and, using a fork, break into chunks. Add the cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, capers, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to soften, about 8 to 10 minutes.
4 Add the pasta, and the parsley. Toss until all the ingredients are coated, adding a little pasta water, if needed, to thin out the sauce.
5 Season with salt and pepper and Parmesan cheese, to taste. Transfer the pasta to a serving bowl and serve warm or at room temperature.
