Tuna Tomato Pasta
A simple and tasty pasta dish that the whole family will love.
- 375g / 12 oz Dry pasta Shape of choice
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 Onion finely chopped
- 1 tsp Minced Garlic
- 600g / 21oz Canned Chopped Tomatoes (Equivalent to 1 & ½ 400g / 14oz can)
- 30g (¼ cup) Kalamata Olives Chopped
- 2 x 145g (5oz) Cans of Tuna in Olive Oil Drained (total drained weight 204g)
Pasta (cook while sauce is simmering)
Heat the olive oil in a large pan on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the onion, reduce to medium-low and cook for around five minutes, until turned translucent. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute.
Add the canned tomatoes and olives, breaking down any larger tomato pieces with a wooden spoon. Allow to simmer for 2 mins.
Add the tuna (drained) to the pan, breaking up any chunks of tuna with a wooden spoon. Allow simmering for 10-15 mins. Taste and season accordingly (do not season if serving a baby.)
Add the cooked pasta and stir into the sauce. If the pasta seems a little dry, add a little of the reserved pasta water and stir through.
Canned Tomatoes: You can use crushed or chopped tomatoes. If you prefer a smoother sauce then replace with passata.
Serving Suggestions: Delicious served with freshly chopped parsley and grated parmesan cheese.
