About this recipe: A quick meal for garlic lovers (warning- may cause bad breath). Do not throw away the oil from the tuna- it tastes great as a sauce.

Serves: 1 

  • 75 to 115g spaghetti

  • 1 pinch of seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic granules, etc.)

Prep:3min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Extra time:1min  ›  Ready in:16min 

  1. Boil water and add spaghetti to a pan. Pour boiling water on top (enough to cover the pasta) and boil for 10-12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, open the tuna and drain the oil into a frying pan. Heat on a low setting.
  3. Crush garlic and put into pan of oil. Fry for a few minutes.
  4. Once pasta has been boiled for 10-12 minutes, drain off water, put in a bowl, add the garlic and oil, and add tuna. If there is too much liquid, put the pasta into a sieve to drain away some of the oil.
