Angel Hair Pasta with Spanish Sardines and Broccoli

Last Christmas, one of our big bosses gifted us with Smoked Salmon.  The box has a recipe for pasta, but some of the ingredients are not available and not known to me (actually more of this than the first, hahaha) So I searched for a good recipe on the net and found this.  First time I tried this recipe was so so, since all the spiral pasta got soggy.  Second time was better but forgot to take photo, hence no post for that, haha.

Yesterday, my SIL was here in Cebu and I decided to cook pasta for her.  I used Spanish Sardines instead of Smoked Salmon and added some broccoli flowers.
