Directions
  • First, bring a pot of well-salted water to a boil.
  • Drain the tuna in oil. Peel the onion and garlic and cut into thin slices. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan and add the garlic and onion. Sauté over low heat for a few minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the tuna to the frying pan. Let it brown for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Now mash the peeled tomatoes with a fork and pour into the frying pan. Mix well and let everything simmer for about 5 minutes. Add chopped basil and oregano to taste and continue to simmer.
  • In the meantime, put the spaghetti in the pot with the boiling water and cook until al dente. Then drain it and put it directly into the frying pan with the tuna-tomato sauce. Season with pepper and salt and mix everything nicely.
  • Finally, arrange on deep plates, garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot.
    Buon appetito!
