Tomato, Shallot and Tuna Pasta


A pasta dish with canned fish, sautéed shallot and garlic and sweet and succulent cherry tomatoes is an extraordinary method to utilize straightforward storeroom fixings to make a flavorful and new weeknight feast.


1 lb pasta

1/2 Tablespoon olive oil

2 shallots, minced

3–5 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon dry herbs

salt, ground dark pepper, to taste

1 lb grape or cherry tomatoes, (you can likewise utilize ordinary tomatoes, cleaved)

1 Tablespoon lime juice

2 (4.5 oz each) jars Bella Portofino yellowfin fish pressed in olive oil

1 – 1 1/2 Tablespoons parsley and basil, cleaved


Heat a huge pot of salted water to the point of boiling. Cook the pasta as indicated by how you like it. (I utilized rigatoni, however, you can utilize any kind of pasta that you like.) Spare about some of the pasta water to disperse the sauce later.

While the water is reaching boiling point and the pasta is cooking, heat around 1/2 Tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high warmth. Include the minced shallots and garlic and cook for around 5 minutes, until delicate. Include the tomatoes, flavoring with salt, ground dark pepper and a blend of dry herbs, for example, dry parsley, oregano, basil, squashed red pepper chips, and so forth. Including dry herbs likewise gives another degree of flavor and the red pepper pieces carry a touch of warmth to the sauce also.

Cook the tomatoes until they are mollified and even a piece burned in certain spots, around 5-7 minutes. This will likewise include a ton of flavor. Pour in 1/4-1/2 cup of pasta water to the sauce, scratching the base of the skillet to deglaze the container and to separate all the beautiful flavors.

Chip the fish a piece with a fork and afterward add to the sauce, cooking for one more moment, just to heart the fish through.

Include the new herbs and the lime juice.

Include the sauce with the pasta, blending to consolidate. In the event that you need to, you can utilize the rest of the pasta water to relax up the pasta, on the off chance that it needs it. This pasta dish would taste incredible with Garlic Bread or Garlic Bunches.

Rather than utilizing cherry tomatoes, you can go through hacked new tomatoes or even canned diced tomatoes or canned squashed tomatoes.
