Spicy Tuna and Tomato Pasta

This meal is a great one for when you’re running low on food and need to use up things from the back of the cupboard. It’s also good for when you’re in a rush as it only takes ten minutes to prepare and cook!

Tip: you can make this dish as spicy as you want by using more or less chilli powder. If you’re not a fan of spicy food then it still tastes good if you only use 1/2 a tsp of chilli powder – I wouldn’t leave the chilli out entirely, as using a little bit still gives some flavour without actually making the dish spicy.

Leftovers should be fine to reheat for around three days if kept in the fridge, or around a month if frozen.

Serves: two people.

Cost per person: £0.79 (price based on Tesco Value ingredients).

Ingredients:

  • 200g pasta
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 can (400g) chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can (185g) tuna, drained and flaked
  • 1-2 tsps chilli powder
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Method

1) Put the pasta on to boil. Whilst it is cooking chop the onion and garlic, and fry them for around 3 minutes with the chilli powder on a high heat.
