5 Days Food Challenge: Day 2 with Pasta with tomatoes, tuna and chillies

This super easy pasta recipe inspired by Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course. When I bought this book, I thought it will be hard to follow recipe book, since Gordon is one if the Michelin Award Chef. My 1st Gordon book nothing short from long list of ingredients to achieve full flavour Asian Food. This book, amazingly caters for mum like myself that short of cooking time most of the nights !

Unfortunately I could not find Anchovy on Supermarket shelves lately, so we substitute with tuna and the outcome is delicious as expected.

1.       Cook pasta accordingly

2.       Meanwhile, heat a wide frying pan over medium heat, add glug of olive oil, then fry the garlic,chilli and tuna for 1-2 minutes until garlic is aromatic.

3.       Add olives, capers and tomatoes to the pan and stir over medium heat for about 5 minutes until tomatoes become a bit softer and everything is well combined.

4.       Drain the pasta, toss into the pan with sauce. 

5.       Seasoning with salt and pepper as your taste.
