  • 400 g cleaned sardines
  • 320 g pasta

  • 75 ml First Harvest extra-virgin olive oil

  • Walnuts

Step by step

  1. Step 1

    Start with the vinaigrette to bind all the flavours together: mix the intense olive oil with the juice of half a lemon, a pinch of salt and pepper and the chopped walnuts. Put by.

    Sauté the fresh asparagus in a frying pan with a good dash of extra-virgin olive oil. After a couple of minutes, add the sardines and leave to cook for 5 more minutes, taking care not to break up the fish when stirring. Add salt as necessary and put by.

    Cook the pasta and take off the boil and strain a couple of minutes before it’s fully cooked. Mix the pasta with the asparagus, sardines and vinaigrette on a serving dish.

    Serve warm or cold.

  2. Fusilli is the best type of pasta to use in this salad.
