Ingredients

Ingredients for 4 people
  • 350g Barilla Whole Grain Spaghetti
  • 1/2 jar Barilla Sundried Tomato Pesto
  • 200g Tuna, tinned in oil or fresh
  • 1/3 cup of capers
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 bunch of parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 glass white wine, dry
  • 1tbs dried chilli or 1 small fresh chilli
  • Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • Rock salt, for pasta water
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • TO START

    Bring a large pot of water to the boil and add salt.
  • COOK THE PASTA

    Drop the Barilla Whole Grain Spaghetti into the water and stir. Cook according to the instructions on the pack.
  • COOK THE TUNA

    Meanwhile, in a large fry pan, heat a little oil. When hot, add the red onion and gently cook for 3 minutes until almost caramelised. At this stage, add the garlic and chilli and cook for further 2 minutes. Add the tuna and capers and cook for 2 minutes, then add the wine and allow it to evaporate.
  • COMBINE AND SERVE

    Drain the pasta one minute before the suggested time and toss it into the sauce with ½ cup of cooking water to allow the pasta to finish cooking in the pan. Remove from the heat and stir in the Barilla Sundried Tomato Pesto. Serve with a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive oil and sprinkle with parsley.
