4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 medium shallots, finely chopped
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 x (150 g) cans of tuna in olive oil, drained
400 g can of diced tomatoes
500 g spaghetti
1 lemon, zested and juiced
30 g capers, drained
Small handful of parsley, chopped
80 g feta cheese, crumbled
2 tbsp olive oil


Start by cooking the spaghetti in a large pot of salted boiling water according to the package instructions until al dente.
While the pasta is cooking, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes, and sauté for about 3 minutes until the shallots are soft.
Stir in the diced tomatoes and the olive oil from the tuna cans. Let it simmer for about 10 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.
Add the drained tuna to the tomato sauce and break it into chunks. Cook for another 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Drain the spaghetti, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Add the spaghetti and reserved pasta water to the sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is well coated.
Remove from heat and stir in the lemon zest and juice. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve the pasta in bowls, topped with crumbled feta cheese, capers, and a sprinkle of chopped parsley.
