1
To begin, mix together all the marinade ingredients for the sardines in a bowl then add the sardines. Leave in the fridge to marinate for at least 3 hours, or overnight
2
To make the Sicilian breadcrumbs, combine all of the ingredients and slowly fry in a pan until dried out. Transfer to a blender and blitz to a fine crumb
3
To make the tomato sauce, bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the tomatoes. Once the skins are just starting to wrinkle, plunge into iced water to stop the cooking process, then peel the tomatoes
4
Remove the seeds from the tomatoes then add the remaining flesh to a pan and cook over a low heat with a garlic clove. Stir gently over a low heat for 10 minutes, then add to a blender and blitz to a purée. Season to taste
5
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6
6
Cook the fresh pasta in salted boiling water for 3–4 minutes or until al dente. Meanwhile, drain the sardines and cook in the hot oven for 2 minutes
7
Toss the fresh basil, oregano, sliced red chilli and salt with the drained pasta and arrange on top of the sauce in a bowl. Top with the sardines and Sicilian breadcrumbs and finish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
