  3. Pour the breadcrumb mixture into the pasta and toss to mix together.
  4. Serve with Parmesan cheese available for topping. A green salad as a side would make this a light meal.

  3. Stir in the breadcrumbs and cheese, when mixed in, add the parsley, black pepper, remove from heat and add the pasta and mix, serve.

For sardines in olive oil, I have only seen one brand, Ayam, for 59 Baht per 120 gram tin, these are very good. If you make your own sardines in olive oil, you can reduce this price just a bit. Using 2 tins of sardines and 4 servings, this is about 87 cents per serving.

The Italian translates into basically cheese and pepper pasta, since I am not teaching Italian, I will go with cheese and pepper pasta. For the Italians viewing this, no, it is not correct, nor is the cheese used but it sounds tasty so it is on my to cook list.
