My husband and I love this dish. It’s rich in flavours and hot. A lot of people don’t like canned tuna heated, I don’t know why, maybe because it smells fish, I know it is so delicious combined with the pasta, the tomatoes and a hint of hotness from the red pepper.
I saw this recipe once on a tv show hosted by Jamie Oliver. It takes no time, it’s so easy and yummiiii. You should try it. And tell me what you think.
Rigatoni with tuna & tomatoes (for 2 hungry persons)
-200g canned tuna with red pepper
-400g canned whole tomatoes
-1 medium onion, grated
-half teaspoon of cinnamon
-few basil leaves
Put a good amount of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat with the red pepper from the canned tuna, the cinnamon and the basil stalks. Then add the onion, stir for 2 minutes until the onions soften.
Add the tuna and stir, let stand for 5 minutes. Add the canned tomatoes and let simmer for 15 minutes. Then add the torned basil leaves.
In the meantime, cook the rigatoni to al dente.
Toss the pasta in the tuna mix and splash it with some lemon juice. You can top the pasta with some grated parmesan. Delicious.
