Mediterranean Tuna Pasta

This Mediterranean style tuna dish delivers with strong flavours and is really easy to cook. A small piece of tuna goes a long way in a filling dish like this.

400g penne pasta
½ cup olive oil
3 cloves finely sliced garlic
1 finely chopped red chilli
6 chopped anchovies
200g cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons capers
200g pitted black olives (drain well)
¾ cup chopped basil leaves
½ cup rocket & baby spinach mix
Rock salt and cracked black pepper




1. Cook the pasta, drain and set aside


2. Preheat fry pan to med-high. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and cook tuna to your liking, but not longer than ‘just cooked through’. Remove from fry pan and set aside




3. Add the remaining olive oil, garlic, chilli, anchovies, cherry tomatoes, capers and olives. Cook for 5-10 minutes until cherry tomatoes start to soften




4. Mix in the cooked pasta, tuna, basil leaves and rocket & baby spinach mix

Extra notes

  • Can add a few boiled eggs and avocado at the end for extra body and flavour
  • ½ a long red chili or a full small red chili provides sufficient heat
