Linguine with tomato and tuna sauce

This is one of those quick, simple, inexpensive but ‘oh so tasty’ pasta dishes that you’ll make over and over again. You only need to use a few basic store cupboard ingredients and you can have this ready for lunch or supper in about 20 minutes.

Linguine bolognese

You will need…(serves 4)

  • 2 tablespoons of light olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 400g tin of plum tomatoes
  • 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar
  • 400g linguine
  • 160g tin of tuna, drained
  • 40g grated Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper

To make…

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and sweat the onions for about 10 minutes until soft, sweet and golden. Add the tomatoes, sugar and salt, simmer gently.
  • Cook the linguine according to the instructions on the pack – it’s usually 10 minutes in a large pan of boiling salted water.
  • By the time the pasta is ready, the sauce should have reduced. Stir in the tuna.
  • Drain the pasta and tip it into the sauce, coat each strand thoroughly.
  • Serve in warm bowls and top with the Parmesan cheese and black pepper.
