The hunger growls made us take a quick break. I went to the kitchen. I checked the cabinet. I found a can of tuna, tomato sauce, tomato paste and pasta. I have 2 big packs of tortiglioni so I have been thinking how to use them up. I came up with this simple dish and it turned out to be tasty meal.
What you need:
150 g pasta ( I used tortiglioni) cooked al dente
150 g canned tuna, drain well
2 heaping TBSP tomato paste
150 g tomato sauce
1 TBSP sugar
dash of parsley
This is a sauce in a rush. My sister and I were starving so I threw the tuna, tomato paste, tomato sauce and water in the sauce pan. I stirred it. I added sugar to neutralize the acidity of the tomato sauce and seasoned it with salt and pepper. I let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. I did the taste test and adjusted the flavor. I added parsley last.
Before eating, I sprinkled fried garlic on top. I tell you, the taste, aroma and texture of garlic made this dish a winner.
