Pasta con tonno e accluge


  • Heat 4 tbsp oil in a wok (or large, deep non-stick pan) and briefly sauté the garlic and chilli flakes until lightly coloured. Then add the tomatoes with quite a bit of salt and a little ground pepper. Mix well, turn the heat down and simmer until the tomatoes begin to collapse, stirring now and again.
  • At the same time, cook the pasta in a large pot of lightly salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain well.
  • Remove the wok from the heat and add the anchovies, capers, olives and parsley. Then add the drained pasta and toss well, before adding the tuna and carefully folding in.
  • Serve the pasta in individual flat soup bowls with a sprinkling of fresh oil and plenty of grated pecorino sprinkled on top and extra pecorino in a small bowl on the side.
