Spaghetti Con Sugo Di Tonno

Spaghetti Con Sugo Di Tonno

Light and delicious and so quick to make that you can have dinner on the table in the time it takes to boil the pasta. Make sure to use the olive oil-packed tuna, and not water- or vegetable oil-packed.

Otherwise you can make your own tuna flakes and soaked your tuna flakes for a while in olive oil.

Servings: 6


  • 1 pound spaghetti pasta
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil plus extra for drizzling
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 cans tuna 6 oz. cans
  • 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley chopped
  • 1 Salt and pepper to taste


  • Start your spaghetti boiling in a big pot of salted water. Add a glug of white vinegar to keep the pasta sticking, if you’d like.
  • Meanwhile, heat the 3 tablespoons olive oil in a very large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and the red pepper flakes and cook until the garlic is softened. Add the tuna and the olive oil it’s packed in – do not drain it! Stir it around for a minute or two.
  • Drain your pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the water the pasta cooked in. Add the drained pasta to the skillet, and stir everything around really well. Add the reserved pasta water and stir until the noodles all seem to be coated with the olive oil. Add the parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
