Simply Supper - Take 1 tin ot Tuna

Do you remember that many years ago there were adverts for Sainsburys that started with "Simply take...?" Well, this is my take on that. (Pardon the pun).

This recipe will serve 2 hungry people.

Simply take

1 tin ot tuna
1 dessertspoon on chopped capers
10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 tbsp of olive oil
250 g of dry tagliatelle. Don't waste your money o the so called fresh stuff.

Put a large pan of salted water on to boil. When it has come to a good rolling boil throw in the pasta. stir and simmer gently until the pasta is cooked.

While the water is coming to a boil, warm some olive oil in a largish pan and add the chopped capers and quartered tomatoes. When they are warm through add the tuna that you have broken up slightly. Make sure that the sauce only heats rather than boils. This way you will retail the tase of the olive oil.

By this time the pasta should be cooked. Strain and add to the sauce. Toss ot all together and serve. Yum.
