Spaghetti with Tuna and Tomato Sauce

Spaghetti with a Tuna and Tomato Sauce This is a tasty meal that can be cooked in a jiffy [took me about 11 minutes from beginning to end – active time was about 6 minutes] and the kids love it.

You’ll need some spaghetti, a can of tuna, a block of grana padano cheese, onions, garlic, tomato puree, mixed herbs, salt, pepper and a little olive oil. Here’s what you do – Put the water on the heat and bring to a boil. While the water boils, slice the onions and garlic [or mash it], open the can of tuna, grate a little cheese. If the water is boiling, add a few drops of oil, couple of pinches salt – then add the spaghetti, submerge it, set the timer for the cooking time mentioned on the packet. When thats done, heat a little olive oil in a pan and put in the onions and garlic. Fry for a couple of minutes, then add some tuna and the mixed herbs. Fry a bit, finally add the tomato puree and a little water to suit your taste. Simmer for a couple of minutes and season to taste. Take off the heat. Your spaghetti should be just about done by now. Take off the heat, pour into a colander and keep under running water for a few seconds.

Serve the sauce on a bed of spaghetti and top with the grated cheese.
