Fail/Not Fail

The Mouse votes not fail, but the rest of the world? Hee hee.

The Mouse erroneously bought a tin of sardines in water. In his opinion, not a favorite. He decided to try to make pasta with sardines and tomato sauce (Pasta Con Sardine Siciliano), The Mouse looked it up. Hee hee.


The Mouse working off an idea, no recipe (for the most part, The Mouse views recipes kinda like instructions in DIY furniture boxes. Heh heh. Just kidding (maybe).

This was the idea.

Pasta Con Sardine Siciliano

Pic from:


The Mouse cooked the pasta, drained, added smashed the sardines and tomato sauce, dried oregano, salt, pepper, simmered.

The Mouse ended up with kind of a hybrid dish. Part pasta, part soup, part gravy. Tasty with bread.

Tomato Chowder with Pasta and Sardines

You can say it, The Mouse got weird. Hee hee. But there was kinda a reason, the refridge is stuffed, no space for leftover tomato sauce. Had to use the whole can. Would he do it again? Definite maybe. Hee hee.

So if trying to create a recipe? Fail. But if trying to create something tasty? Win. 🙂

Plus the dish wasn’t for company, or even The Cat. Made by The Mouse, eaten by The Mouse. 😉

Stay safe and well.
