Tuna Pasta

How to make a Tuna Pasta.

Ingredients: 4 People

  • 12 oz pasta (approx. 360g or 3oz/80g per person)
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ medium onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 10 oz tuna, drained (approx. 250g) either water or oil-packed
  • 14 oz crushed tomato (approx. 400g or 1.5 cups)
  • 10 large olives diced (optional)
  • 1-2 salt-cured anchovies optional
  • ½ cup grated Manchego cheese (approx. 45g)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cook the pasta al dente, according to package instructions.
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a heavy pan and add the diced onion. Sauté for about five minutes until translucent.
  • Add the minced garlic and sauté for one more minute until just starting to brown.
  • Add the crushed tomato, drained tuna, and anchovies (if using). Stir and cook over medium-high heat for five minutes.
  • Add the diced olives (and any other embellishments) if using. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Drain the pasta once al dente and add to the pan. Stir gently to fully coat the pasta in the sauce.
