Orecchiette Pasta with Tomato and Tuna Sauce
It serves 4 and takes only the time needed to heat the water and cook the pasta.
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 400g cans chopped tomatoes (only buy the best)
2 200g cans tuna, partially drained
a knob of butter
500g bag of orecchiette pasta
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)
fresh cracked pepper
Get the oil hot and sauté the garlic until it just begins to brown. Add the tomatoes and simmer until the pasta is cooked. Turn off the heat.
Mix the tuna and the butter evenly into the tomato sauce and season with the pepper and parsley.
Toss with the pasta and serve. Parmesan cheese does nothing to enhance this dish – serve it with nothing but a tiny sprinkle of parsley.
