A quick but tasteful preparation, perfect for when you have little time to cook. So let’s see how to prepare spaghetti with swordfish and dried tomatoes.

How to prepare spaghetti with swordfish and dried tomatoes

Quickly prepare the basil pesto by inserting the leaves with the parmesan cheese, extra virgin olive oil, almonds, salt and pepper into the blender (1).

Blend until you get a creamy and homogeneous consistency (2).

Prepare the dried tomato powder by placing the dried tomatoes in an oven preheated to 220 degrees C for at least 15 minutes in an oiled pan (3).

Dry the tomatoes as soon as they come out of the oven with absorbent paper then put them in the food processor together with the almonds (4).

Cut the swordfish into cubes, taking care to remove the skin and the central spine (5).

Cook the spaghetti in abundant salted water following the package directions for al dente cooking (6).

Fry a clove of garlic in a pan sprinkled with oil (7).

Add the swordfish and after a few minutes simmer with white wine until reduced (8).

Then add the chopped dried tomatoes, chilli pepper and pepper (9).

Stir the pasta on the stove turned off with the preserved cooking water; now you just have to add the basil and almond pesto and mix (10).

Serve the spaghetti hot, sprinkling the surface with the dried tomato powder and a drizzle of oil (11).


You can preserve spaghetti in the refrigerator, inside an airtight container, for up to 24 hours. To consume them again, heat a pan and sprinkle with a little water to prevent the spaghetti from sticking.
