My husband Pascal and I decided to cook this pasta dish as it didn't need too many ingredients and only took around 15 minutes, I found it on Jamie Oliver's website but I made a few alterations.
Ingredients for 2 big portions (we were hungry):
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
4 anchovy fillets, sliced
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
Extra virgin olive oil
2 x 120g tin of quality tuna in olive oil
1 tablespoon baby capers, rinsed
10 green olives, halved
Juice of half a lemon
100g wild rocket
To serve (optional):
I always prepare my ingredients first so started off by chopping the garlic, olives, anchovies and tomato.
Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the garlic, anchovies and capers for a couple of minutes. Then add the tomatoes and toss well.
When the pasta is ready, drain but reserve a cupful of cooking water. Add the pasta to the tomatoes etc and mix well, adding a splash of water if necessary - we needed to.
Flake in the tuna, squeeze the lemon, add the olives and most of the rocket and drizzle with olive oil and toss again.
Season generously and serve with any remaining rocket and a scattering of Parmesan if desired.
This was really really good - we were surprised how much we enjoyed this, such a simple recipe but bursting with flavours. I am very pleased I have left over ingredients as I will definitely be making this again soon and I love that this is easy to make for just one person as well. It tasted so fresh…..a real winner!
