GF tagliatelle with tuna, lemon & rocket

2018-03-10 13:20 #0 by: Leia

So I came across this super simple recipe from BBC goodfood and I was blown away by how tasty and flavoursome despite how boring it may sound. 

The recipe also uses things you are most likely to have in your store-cupboard with just 5 ingredients; Tagliatelle, tuna, lemon/lemon juice, garlic cloves and rocket. 

It's quick, it's easy, it's cheap and most importantly it's gluten-free!

Ingredients:

  • 300g dried tagliatelle
  • 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 x 260g cans tuna in extra virgin olive oil, drained
  • a handful of rocket, plus a little extra to garnish
  • grated zest and juice of 1 lemon


Method:

  1. Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water until al dente. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in another large pan, add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

  2. Put the drained tuna in a bowl. Lightly mash with a fork and add to the garlic in the pan, then add the rocket. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and stir in the lemon zest and juice.

  3. Drain the pasta and add to the tuna mixture. Mix well together and serve immediately, drizzled with a little extra virgin olive oil and garnished with extra rocket.

All the best, Leia

I would grate some parmesan over it as well. :-)

Are there any alternatives that you could suggest for the tuna? This recipe sounds (and looks) really good otherwise!

I think pesto might work well too.
