Serves 2 Cook: 12 min

Ingredients

Leeks 2
Cherry tomatoes 10
Garlic 1.5 cloves
Dried chilli 1
Tinned tuna (in sunflower oil) 1 (85g)
Butter 1/2 tsp
Salt for pasta as required
Spaghetti 200-240g
Parmigiano reggiano plenty

Method

1
Roughly chop the leeks and smash one garlic clove. Finely chop the half clove. Start cooking the pasta - use 10-15g salt per litre of water.
2
Put the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat and add the smashed garlic. Add the leeks and fry.
3
Remove the smashed garlic when the leeks are browned and add the tuna and its oil. Add the deseeded and crumbled dried chilli, the finely chopped garlic and the butter.
4
Add two ladles of pasta water and reduce the sauce. Add the tomatoes.
5
Shake the pan to emulsify the oil and pasta water. Add more pasta water if the sauce has reduced too much.
6
Add the cooked pasta to the frying pan and mix well to combine for 1 minute.
7
Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle as much Parmigiano reggiano as you like.

Tips & Note

Leeks are so sweet and delicious when cooked, this works well with the sourness of the tomatoes.
