Refreshing Sardine Pasta

Refreshing Sardine Pasta

Refreshing Sardine Pasta - what else to add. I had a wake up call for Vitamin D. We all do sort of lack it, especially when sitting at work or when the long and dark winter period ends. One of the primal sources of Vitamin D is fish. The best is fresh salmon, however, sardines consist of high content as well. Even the canned ones! Always read what you buy and you cannot go wrong.
