Pancit Sotanghon with Sardines

SotanghonWithSardines1 Pancit Sotanghon with Sardines Last weekend was all rainy here in my side of the world. Though I don’t like rain (especially very hard rain that could stop me from doing things), I just love the sound of it. It kinda makes me feel relaxed. Ehhhr, I guess lazy is the right word…because all I wanna do on a rainy day is to either curl up on the couch with my husband and my daughters, or take a long nap. I also love to EAT when it’s raining! But since I am feeling lazy, I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen…all I want is quick and easy comfort food.


This Pancit Sotanghon with Sardines is one of my favorites during rainy days. It only requires a few basic ingredients…it’s very simple to prepare…and it takes less than 20 mins to cook!  The best thing about it is it tastes wonderful! “Yummy in my tummy” is how my daughters call this dish. Check it out…
