Easy and Authentic Pasta in Tuna Tomato Sauce

Easy and Authentic Pasta in Tuna Tomato Sauce

This pasta is quick and easy but tastes like restaurant quality. Even tomato-haters like me can eat this delicious sauce. The cheese and tuna add lots of rich flavor.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Canned crushed tomatoes
1 can (400 g)
Canned tuna (no-oil, canned in vegetable soup)
1 can
Bacon (optional)
To taste
Pizza cheese
about 50 g
Garlic, grated
1 teaspoon
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
to taste
Olive oil (or vegetable oil)
To taste
To taste
Parsley (for garnish)
To taste
2 servings


1. Put oil in a pan and sauté the garlic over medium heat. When it's fragrant, add the bacon and continue sautéing.
2. Add the canned tomato and the entire contents of the tuna can, and simmer until it's bubbling.
3. Add the cheese and melt into the sauce by mixing.
4. Season with soy sauce, salt and pepper. Simmer down until the sauce is reduced by about 1/3. While the sauce simmers, cook the pasta in boiling salted water (1 teaspoon of salt to 1 liter of water).
5. In the pan, toss the cooked pasta with the sauce. Transfer to serving plates, sprinkle with parsley and black pepper to taste, and it's done.
6. When plating the pasta, give it some height and it will look like the pasta served at a restaurant.
