Chilli tuna pasta

We used plain tuna today, as it was difficult to get hold of chilli flavoured tuna. But nevertheless the pasta was gorgeous. The lemon zest and the lemon juice make this dish taste of sunshine! Whatever sunshine may taste like 😉 -enjoy-


500g spaghetti
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
¼ cup (50g) capers, drained
400g cherry tomatoes, quartered
¼ cup (60ml) red wine vinegar
2 x 185g cans chilli-flavoured tuna, drained
3 cups flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
2 tablespoons lemon zest
sea salt and cracked black pepper
⅓ cup (80ml) lemon juice


Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for 8–10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and set aside.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until lightly browned. Add the capers and cook for a further 1 minute.
Add the pasta, tomato, vinegar, tuna, parsley, lemon zest, salt and pepper and toss to combine. Divide between serving bowls and drizzle with the lemon juice and extra olive oil to serve.
