Simply great tuna pasta

One of my favourite dinner dishes has to be my simply great tuna pasta! After getting home from a long day at work the last thing I feel like doing is spending hours in the kitchen – this little meal is simple to make, delicious, rather healthy, contains pantry stable ingredients and there’s always left overs! Since moving out I’m all about those leftovers…and damn somehow they always taste better the next day? Tuna, olives, garlic, tomato and you’ve got yourself a winner dish – well in my case I think so! The flavour combination is great, and it literally takes about 20 minutes to make tops. I normally put in a couple of anchovies too (cut really fine) for that extra delicious salty flavour.


  • 2 cups spiral pasta
  • 2 large cans of tuna in springwater, drained
  • 1 can tinned tomato
  • 1 brown onion, cut finely
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons black olives
  • 2 tsp chili
  • handful fresh coriander
  • salt & pepper to season

Serves 3


Cook the pasta in a large pot with salt, then drain once Al dente.

Fry the onion and garlic lightly in a medium saucepan. Add the tuna, tomato, olives, chili and then stir. Tear in the coriander and season with salt and pepper.

Dish up the pasta with the tuna sauce and garnish with fresh herbs. Enjoy!

Happy cooking, love Jem x
