You, too, can learn to love sardines

I bet most people would say they don't like sardines.  I used to think I didn't like them either.  Until I made the "Sophia Loren of Pastas," that is. 

I found the recipe online and was instantly intrigued.  It calls for pappardelle, which, not ever having heard that word before, I had to Google.  Turns out it's just broad, flat noodles (like wider, flatter fettuccine).  At my office Christmas party I won a big basket of Trader Joe's groceries(!), which included about three pounds of spaghetti.  Needless to day, I was working to use it all up. I shopped for the rest of the (simple) ingredients, bought a bottle of wine, and invited over the boyfriend. Not only was it easy to make, it was delicious! We're sardine converts, and I'm anxious to make it again. Great success.
