Spaghetti with tuna is a simple, quick dish you can make in a hurry. Full of flavour and very satisfying.

  • 300g/10 oz tuna
  • 400g/14 oz cherry/baby plum tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 tsp peperoncino chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 100g/1/2 cup black olives
  • Handful flat leaf parsley finely chopped
  • Salt & pepper

Add the pasta to a pan of boiling salted water and cook until al dente.

In a large sauce pan drizzle some olive and add the garlic, capers, olives and chilli flakes. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the tuna, season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Drain and add the spaghetti and a ladle of pasta water. Cook for a further 3 minutes.
