Pasta alla Jules

Yesterday was my dearest friend Julia's birthday! It's not everyday a woman turns 25 again... so that calls for a little celebration.  Seen the fact that she lives in Amsterdam and I live in Milan, the actual present has to wait until we see each other, but in the meantime I am dedicating one of her bestest recipes for today's post.
(Also secretely hoping you guys will love it, and then she will feel OBLIGED - yes you know you are - to post some of her recipes; fish&mozza...lemon pangasius...tuna/cottagecheese sandwich...and many more...)

This recipe is a super duper simple and cheap recipe and is  also the perfect 'storage cupboard' recipe! Here we go..

Ingredients: 4 servings

  • 500 gr of pasta - any kind will do - I used whole weat spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • one shallot - chopped up
  • one garlic - chopped up
  • 750 ml tomato sugo
  • 2 cans of tuna (water)
  • 2 tablespoons of dried or fresh rosemary
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • 100gr parmiggiano or pecorino

How to make it:
Bring a big pan of water to a boil and add a fist and a half of salt.
In the meantime heat up the olive oil and bake the shallot and garlic until they become 'trasparent'. Afterwhich you add the sugo and tuna. Stir until the tuna is evenly divided in the sauce. Add the rosemary, salt and pepper.
Pour the spaghetti in the boiling water and cook according to what the pack says.
When the pasta is done - so should be your sauce, nicely boiled down to a thick tomato sauce.
Drain the pasta and divide onto 4 plates - serving the sauce on top.
Add the cheese and top of that, and voila.... Dinner is readyyyyyyy!!!

Outcome: A good and healthy dinner in arms-reach at any time!
