Ingredients:

  • 2 Tins of Tuna

  • 2 Tins of Cannellini Beans

  • 1 Jar of Pitted Green Olives

  • Handful of Capers

  • 3 Cloves of Garlic

  • 2 Tbsp Chilli Flakes

  • 2 Bunches of Parsley

  • 400g of Spaghetti

  • 1 Lemon

  • Olive Oil

  • Salt

  • Pepper

Method:

  1. First, drizzle the olive oil into a pan on a medium heat and finely chop the parsley to add with the chilli flakes. Slice the garlic into thin discs and add them in. Once the garlic has started to cook, add and mix in the olives and capers. Pour the cannellini beans, INCLUDING the bean water into the pan and mix.

  2. In a separate saucepan, cook the spaghetti (see pack instructions). Add about a cup of the pasta water to the olive-bean mix to thicken up the sauce.

  3. Break the tuna into chunks and add to the sauce with another bunch of finely chopped parsley. Add the zest of a whole lemon to the sauce to make it taste extra fresh and to bring out the chilli’s flavour. Add salt and pepper to taste. Finally, add your cooked spaghetti and fold in to sauce, top with more chilli flakes and more chopped parsley and tuck in.
