Method

  1. Prepare the sauce: Heat the oil in a medium pan. Toss in 2 tbsp of the parsley, the garlic, chilli and ginger and fry for a few minutes until slightly soft. Tip in the tomatoes and cook for another few minutes. Fold in the tuna and season the sauce generously. Leave the sauce to simmer for 10 minutes.

  2. Boil the pasta: Meanwhile, cook the pasta for 8-10 minutes, or as directed on the pack. Drain, then return to the pan. Pour the tuna sauce into the pasta and toss well. Sprinkle over the remaining parsley, divide between four bowls and serve.

Delicious! I was out of linguine so used spaghetti, and had no chilli so used dried chilli flakes in my portion as my 6 year old is not keen. Both worked very well. I will definitely be making regularly as my daughter is a big pasta fan & I am a fan of quick, easy, healthy & relatively cheap meal!

this was really yummy but i thought there was a little too much tomato sauce so the tuna was a bit swamped. i will definitely make this again though.

This was delicious, I've just made it as a quick meal for one. Yummy! The only addition was a squeeze of lemon before serving up. Shall make it often!

A very tasty dish, one of the best things you can do with canned tuna. I use the oil from the cans of tuna rather than extra olive oil to saute the garlic mix at the beginning. It's good for a mid-week meal.

I have made this recipe on numerous occasions, sometimes for friends, today for just myself. Flavourful, simple and inexpensive.
