Hiya, it’s been a minute since i shared a recipe here, and it sure isn’t because i haven’t been in the kitchen. That’s one of my top destinations in the house and can i tell you something? Food posts from my cosy kitchen tend to be the most visited posts here and on Facebook – more so than the business tips and since this blog is more about you than it is about moi, here’s another recipe for ya.
It’s easy to make though it takes some attention to timing, and chances are you already have most of the ingredients you’ll see on the list, at home. Plus i’m not a pro cook by any means so if i can do it, so can you amiga. Alright, let’s get started, shall we?
Spaghetti with smoked tuna in salsa and cheese sauce
1 pack Spaghetti (i used Swiss for this)
1 can smoked tuna
1 large onion (large slices)
1/2 sweet pepper (large slices)
1 tbsp oil
1 tomato (diced) or 1 can of tomato purée / 1/3 cup ketchup
salt (1 tbsp – for spaghetti pot, and a few sprinkles for sauce)
2 pinches of black pepper
1 pinch (each) of paprika and curry; 1/2 pinch of turmeric
1 pinch of flour
fresh parsley (stem and leaf), thyme and dill
pepper if you have (i didn’t, this time)
1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
- Put spaghetti in a pot to boil with 1 level tbsp of salt and sprinkle of curry. Sauce prep: Slice onion and sweet pepper. (Garlic is yummy to add too.) Grater cheese in a bowl and cover.
- Heat tbsp of oil in a frying pan with the stove set at low to medium. In 1 minute, add onion and sweet pepper. When the aroma hits, add paprika, curry, turmeric, 1 pinch black pepper and 1/2 of fresh herbs. Stir. 2 minutes after, add tuna and a sprinkle of salt. Stir.
- In 2 mins. add a couple splashes of water, more salt if needed, remaining fresh herbs, salsa/tomato purée/ketchup, 3/4 cheese and stir. Check and drain spaghetti (remove from heat.)
- Lower heat under the frying pan and add flour and mix in right away. (This is to thicken the sauce; stir in quickly so it doesn’t get lumpy.) Taste and tweak to suit.
- Add spaghetti slowly (in parts) and mix so the sauce is evenly around the pasta. Sprinkle on remaining cheese and black pepper. Enjoy!
