Ingredients

  • 250g spaghetti
  • 9 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, very thinly sliced
  • 1 long red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 185g can tuna steaks in brine, drained
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • Large handful fresh flatleaf parsley, chopped

Method

  1.  Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the spaghetti and cook according to packet instructions. Drain, then return to the pan.
  2.  Meanwhile, make the sauce. Heat 4 tablespoons of the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, add the shallots and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the chilli and cook for a further 2 minutes, until everything is softened.
  3.  Add the tuna, lemon juice and parsley and mix together. Add the remaining oil (this will act as a dressing for the pasta), and stir over the heat for 1 minute to heat through. Toss through the cooked spaghetti and season to taste. Divide between 2 warm bowls and serve with grated Parmesan, if you like.
