Ingredients

  • 350g pasta shells
  • 200g pack trimmed fine beans , cut into short lengths
  • 200g can tuna in oil
  • grated zest of a lemon
  • 1 heaped tbsp small capers
  • generous pinch of chilli flakes
  • olive oil for drizzling

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for 8 minutes. Add the beans and cook for a further 3 minutes until both the pasta and beans are just tender. Meanwhile, tip the tuna and its oil into a bowl and flake the fish, keeping the pieces quite large. Stir in the lemon zest, capers, chilli and plenty of salt and pepper.

  • STEP 2

    Drain the pasta and beans, return them to the pan and toss with the tuna mixture. Add a little olive oil if you need to moisten everything. Serve the tuna and lemon pasta on its own or with a tomato and onion salad.
