Tuna, Tomatoes and Chilli Pasta

Spaghetti pasta are great for this dish. I would say that this is a very easy preparation as well as a short cooking time.

It is a delicious and appetizing pasta dish......


 

Serves: 2 - Prepare: 15 minutes - Cook: 15 minutes.


Ingredients:

  • 80/100gr each of Spaghetti (you can also use whole wheat or gluten free pasta

  • 2 cloves garlic - crushed

  • 3 spring onions finely chopped

  • 1/4 tsp chilli flakes (can also use paprika)

  • 1 tin of tuna steak in sunflower oil

  • 150gr cherry tomatoes and/or sun dried tomatoes (I used both of them) - finely chopped

  • 1 organic unwaxed lemon - zest and juice

  • 1 handful pitted black olives

  • Parsley finely chopped

  • Parmesan cheese - optional

  • Olive oil

  • Salt


Method:


Bring a large pan of salted water to boil and cook the spaghetti according to pack instructions.



Meanwhile, heat 1-2 tbsp on oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Fry the garlic, the onions for a few minutes then add the chilli and the tuna (breaking it up into small chunks) and cook for 4/5 minutes more.



Take off the heat add a bit more oil, the lemon juice, the diced tomatoes and the olives. Season, add some of the parsley and set aside.


When the pasta is ready, scoop out 4-5 tbsp of cooking water then drain it.

Tip the pasta into the pan with the cooking water and the tuna and tomatoes and toss together for a few minutes. Stir in the rest of the parsley the lemon zest and, if you like, some parmesan cheese.


Serve immediately.



Notes:

Zest the lemon first and keep the zest aside and then juice it.
