Tuna, Olive and Tomato Spaghetti


Tuna, Olive and Tomato Pasta

I love living in Cornwall but I often miss out on attending foodie events because I live so far away from London (a small price to pay for living in such a beautiful part of the country). I was invited to attend a Taste of Spain Olive masterclass with chef Omar Allibhoy on the 14th September in London, which unfortunately I had to turn down due to travel costs. However, Taste of Spain made sure I didn’t miss out altogether and sent me some Olives through the post so I could have a go at creating some of my own recipes. 

This Tuna, Olive and Tomato Spaghetti was born after a late one at work. It takes less than 20 minutes to make, which is great  for when time is short. I made this for myself and hubby (the kids had already eaten at Nana’s house), so I added lots of fresh red chilli. However, Rory took a liking to it and ended up eating half of mine (he’s a toddler that likes his chilli....and olives!) and in the process splattered his PJ’s in tomato sauce. It was a success all round!

  4. I made this last night and loved it.
    Quick and delicious - my favorite combo. I had to use tuna packed in soybean oil because that's all I could get at the local store but I'm not sure how much difference I'd taste if was packed in olive oil. Will definitely make this again.
