Ingredients

  • 150g spaghetti or linguine
  • 1/2 clove garlic, crushed
  • dried chilli flakes, a good pinch
  • 6 SunBlush tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 tbsp small capers
  • 12 pitted black olives, quartered
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 150g tin tuna, drained

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the pasta in boiling salted water. Meanwhile put the garlic, chilli flakes, tomatoes, capers and olives in a pan with the olive oil. Simmer, letting all the ingredients stew together for about 5 minutes without colouring. Stir in the tuna and heat gently, being careful not to overmix.

  • STEP 2

    Drain the pasta and keep 2-3 tbsp of the cooking water. Tip the pasta into the tomato mixture along with the reserved cooking water and some seasoning. Toss everything together. Just before serving, scatter with basil leaves.
