Ingredients:

  • 2 Tins of Tuna

  • 2 Tins of Cannellini Beans

  • 1 Jar of Pitted Green Olives

  • Handful of Capers

  • 3 Garlic Cloves

  • 2 Tbsp of Chilli Flakes

  • 2 Bunches of Parsley

  • 400g of Spaghetti

  • 1 Lemon

  • Olive Oil

  • Salt

  • Pepper

Method:

  1. Finely chop the parsley and slice the garlic into thin discs.

  2. Drizzle the olive oil into a pan on a medium heat. Add the parsley along with the chilli flakes. Give it a good stir and add the garlic. Once the garlic has started to cook, mix in the olives and capers. Pour the cannellini beans INCLUDING the bean water into the pan and mix.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Finally, add your cooked spaghetti and fold it into the sauce. Top with more chilli flakes and chopped parsley. Tuck in!
