Spaghetti with Tuna chunks

Hello my dear reader. It has been a while, since I have not shared with you recipes from my kitchen. So today I have decided to write on of my favorite recipe for spaghetti. Actually this is my own way of cooking. I have tried many different ways for spaghetti cooking, but on the way of searching my specific taste I came out with this one.

First of all lets remember from where the spaghetti comes.
Spaghetti is a long, thin cylindrical pasta. It is a traditional food of Italian cuisine. Italian spaghetti made from durum wheat semolina, but elsewhere it can be made from different kind of wheats.
The history of spaghetti goes back to 12th century, when in Sicily it was first originated. Later on, in 19th century it has got popularity  when spaghetti factories were established for Italian market.
The word Spaghetti is a plural form of italian word spagetto, which is diminutive of "spago" means "thin string".
Now lets come to my recipe and start the process of cooking.
For this we will need:

  1. 300 gram Spaghetti 
  2. 3 cloves of garlic
  3.  4 tomatoes
  4. 2 tin of canned tuna chunks (one in oil and one in water)
  5. 50 grams grated Cheese 
  6. black olives 
  7. salt 
  8. soya sauce

We boil the spaghetti according to instructions written on the packed. Then chop all the ingredients.
On hot pan we put some oil (try to use less quantity since tuna also has oil and we will use it as well).

Then fry garlic in it for around 3-4 minutes.

When its done, add tomatoes, make  flame slow and keep the lid close since we need to bring out tomato's juice.

When you feel that tomato is cooked pour the tuna in it. 

Since the tuna oil is too much, we will use only 1/3 of it, another part we will keep for frying spaghettis. 

After 10 minutes add soya sauce, salt and spices (by wish).
Our spaghetti is ready, fried as well (during frying I add little tuna oil and salt ).

Now we pour it on plate and we add tuna sauce on top.

Garnish with olives and add cheese on top.

Hope you will like this recipe and will share with me your experience.

Have a good Appetite
