Sardines with Kamut Pasta

Sardines are highly nutritious – rich in omega 3 fatty acids and a good source of vitamin D, calcium, B12 and protein.   I love fresh sardines and buy them whenever I spot them at Spanner Crab Noosa.  They are delicious simply pan fried or grilled. I have also used them to make fermented fish and in pateBut for today I will leave with you this recipe.
