Spicy Spaghetti with Sardine and Carrots

Spicy Spaghetti With Sardine And CarrotsHere's a unique combination of spaghetti and sardine that's going to make your breakfast, a fulfilling experience. Although fresh sardines are not readily available in most parts of the world, using a canned version for this recipe works just as well. If you can get the fresh ones, nothing can be better than that. This is a fairly dry recipe which is contrary to a typical spaghetti preparation. If you want, you can add some more sauces to it to get a creamy texture. I've used carrots and iceberg lettuce in this recipe. To make it richer and visually appealing, you can also add bell peppers and whole green chilies. We all know sardines can't be kept for long, so consume this preparation fresh and hot.
