Sardines with Misua Recipe

One quick and easy soup recipe is Sardines with Misua. This recipe converts canned Sardines (or Mackerel) in tomato sauce into a simple but flavorful soup dish.Misua are thin flour noodles that are usually added to soups. Almondigas (or Misua with patola soup) is a good example of a soup dish that uses Misua.

In this recipe, you can use any brand of sardines as long as it is in a tomato based sauce. One small cylindrical can of sardines should be enough for the entire process. If you like to add vegetables to this recipe, please feel free to do so. Upo (bottle gourd), chayote, and patola (loofa) are some of the vegetables that I can suggest.
