Tuna in chilli oil with bow pasta and green beans
This was my favourite dinner of the week. Jac cooked up a pot of bow pasta (farfalle). I blanched some chopped green beans, then opened a can of Sirena tuna slices with chilli and oil. I love canned tuna slices – I find it more meaty, satisfying and pleasurable to eat than chunk style or sandwich style tuna. I mixed the blanched green beans with some freshly cooked pasta, then topped that with the tuna slices and a drizzle of the chilli oil poured from the can. Not all the oil, I’d say around half. A little cracked black pepper on top and it was ready for photographing, then eating.
It was such a simple meal to prepare, but so delicious. I will definitely have this again (in fact, since I originally wrote this post, I’ve had it another couple of times, once more with pasta, and another time with freshly cooked rice).
PS. this is not a sponsored post – I just really like this product. :)
Still working on the new site. Due to the limited time I have to work on it, I’m making very slow progress, which is extremely frustrating. But I will get there…
