My husband and I will likely make this recipe again. We only used half the amount of sardines-- each of our cans was half the amount. The sardines were a bit of a pain to debone. But the end result was delicious. The next time I make it I will likely use the full amount of sardines.

I'm definitely adding this to my repertoire. This easy, fast recipe was surprisingly tasty. I don't think I've ever had sardines before, but they made a good sauce. I served it with roasted brussels sprouts, which was a good accompaniment. Would also be good with a green salad.

Nice change of pace from the old tomato pasta sauce. It's got tomato sauce, yes, but the sardines was way better than the overdone meatballs. I liked the fennel more than anything else. Kids didn't know what hit them. Will make again!

Interesting and different, but I'm not sure I'll make this again. We don't like fennel, so I substituted bok choy stems instead. Enjoyed this the night I made it, but got a bit tired of the sardine flavor in leftovers.
