this is a very simple recipe and only takes about 15-20 minutes to make (including boiling the water for cooking the pasta!). one of aina’s favorite, too 🙂
200gr of pasta (fusilli or spiral pastas)
180gr can of tuna in brine, drained
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1 1/2 tbsp of capers
1/4 cup of finely chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
chili flakes, to taste
freshly ground pepper
flake the drained tuna with fork.
in a large bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, capers, chopped parsley, lemon juice and chili flakes. mix them well. add the flaked tuna, and mix again. add salt + pepper to taste.
meanwhile, cook the pasta al dente. drain pasta and toss it into the capers and tuna mixture. add about 4 tbsp of water used to cook the pasta into the mix to give moist consistency.
