Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Ten-Min Tuna, Lemon & Caper Spaghetti

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps

Wash your fruit and veg

Note: equipment and pan sizes vary. Ensure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2 Ten-Min Tuna, Lemon & Caper Spaghetti

Now let's get started!

Boil a kettle

Chop the spring onions roughly (chop them in one bunch for speed!)

Chop the basil roughly, including the stalks

3 Ten-Min Tuna, Lemon & Caper Spaghetti

Peel half of the Italian hard cheese until you have a pile of shavings (set these aside for serving!)

Grate the remaining Italian hard cheese

4 Ten-Min Tuna, Lemon & Caper Spaghetti

Add the quick cook spaghetti to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the spaghetti for just 2 min or until cooked with a slight bite (it will keep cooking in the sauce later!)

Once done, drain the spaghetti reserving a large cup of the starchy pasta water

5 Ten-Min Tuna, Lemon & Caper Spaghetti

Meanwhile, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil over a medium-high heat

Meanwhile, drain the tuna

Once hot, add the sliced spring onion, capers, roasted garlic paste and drained tuna to the pan and cook for 30 sec

6 Ten-Min Tuna, Lemon & Caper Spaghetti

Add the drained spaghetti with the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon, the grated cheese and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Add a splash of the starchy pasta water with a generous drizzle of olive oil and give everything a good mix up

Cook for 30 sec further or until the sauce beings to stick to the pasta

7 Ten-Min Tuna, Lemon & Caper Spaghetti

Remove the pan from the heat and stir through the chopped basil – this is your tuna, lemon & caper spaghetti 

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges
