Tuna and Olive Linguine

This is the type of dish I make when there is nothing in the fridge or if I want to make a dish that all of my family and friends will love. In fact, it has become a favourite that both friends and family remind me of constantly. It's mainly due to the ease of preparation and quality ingredients (I mean, you only have to slice an onion). Try it. You won't be disappointed.

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add a small handful of salt to the water.
  2. Cook olive oil and onions in deep sauté pan on medium high heat until they become translucent. 
  3. Add the tuna and olives, crumbling tuna with spoon or fork. Cook for about 3 minutes. 
  4. Add the tomatoes and crush with a fork. Add more olive oil if needed. Sauce should be more oily than a regular tomato sauce. Lower the heat and let cook while you are waiting for the pasta to cook.
  5. In the meantime, add your pasta to the boiling water. Make sure the pot is large enough that the pasta is covered completely with water. Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  6. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking pasta water. Drain pasta when it’s still al dente (hard) and add to the sauté pan with your sauce. Combine well. Add the reserved pasta water and turn off heat. Continue to mix until well coated with the sauce. Add more olive oil if necessary.
  7. Serve and enjoy warm!
