Ingredients

Pasta

  • 375g / 12 oz Dry pasta Shape of choice

Sauce

  • 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)

Instructions

Pasta (cook while sauce is simmering)

  • Cook the pasta according to the packaging. Drain reserving around ½ cup of cooking liquid

Sauce

  • 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.

Notes

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.
