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 πŸ˜‰ -enjoy-

500g spaghetti
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
