On tonights menu is one of my favourite "cook it up in a jiffy faster than a takeaway and fairly healthy too" suppers.
Ingredients:2 cloves garlic (chopped) or 2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 onion (chopped)
1 tin tuna in springwater (425g)
1 tin diced tomatoes (400g)
1 jar tomato based pasta sauce (500g) - use any brand you like eg. Dolmio, Raguletto etc.
1 teaspoon of sugar (optional)
Your favourite type of pasta of gnocchi
MethodPut a large pot of water on to boil for the pasta or gnocchi, and cook as directed.
In a large saucepan, saute the garlic and onion in a little olive oil and butter until softened.
Add the entire tin of tuna (including the springwater) and stir until simmering.
Add the tin of chopped tomatoes and the jar of pasta sauce.
Simmer for five minutes.
Taste the sauce. If it is too acidic (from the tomatoes) then add 1 teaspoon of sugar.
Serve over your favourite pasta.
This sauce can also be used to make tuna lasagne.
