1) Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it until it tastes like the sea. Cook pasta until al dente, usually 1 minute less than the package instructions. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup of the cooking liquid.

2) Return pasta to the pot it was cooked in and add the reserved water to it. Heat the pot over low heat and gently break up the tin of sardines into large pieces adding it to the pasta along with the drained can of beans and zest and juice from 1 lemon. Gently toss for a minute until just heated through.

3) Remove from heat and toss in parsley, a generous glug of olive oil and a season with salt to taste. Finish with a topping of bread crumbs and as much Calabrian chilis as you can handle.

* Garlicky Breadcrumbs*

1) Break up a couple slices of bread into chunks and add them to a food processor. Whiz them until bread is broken up into pea sized pieces. 

2) In a skillet, heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat and add 2 cloves of minced garlic. Toss for a couple seconds then add the bread crumbs. 

3) Stir the breadcrumbs around until nicely toasted and browned, about 5 minutes. Season with a little salt to taste.
