Ingredients

  • Pinch chilli flakes, optional
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 75g mixed pitted olives, roughly sliced
  • 1 tbsp capers in brine, drained
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 200ml dry white wine (or stock)
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 350-400g wholewheat pasta
  • 230g smoked mackerel fillets, flaked
  • Chopped fresh parsley and lemon wedges to serve

Method

  1. Warm the oil in a large non-stick frying pan with the chilli flakes, garlic and olives for 1-2 minutes. Add the capers and tomato purée, pour in the wine and bring up to a simmer, then stir in the chopped tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes to thicken.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta until 
al dente according to the packet instructions. Drain loosely, saving a cupful of the cooking water.
  3. Once the sauce has thickened, stir in the mackerel and heat for a couple of minutes to warm through, then stir in the pasta with a splash of the cooking water and toss well to mix. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.
