Chilli Tuna Spaghetti

Fish based pasta dishes can make a nice, tasty change from the usual meat based ones. Try this Tuna Spaghetti Recipe for yourself and you’ll see what we mean. We find that our John West Tuna Steak is especially effective with pasta, because their firmness and succulence contrasts perfectly with the texture of the spaghetti or penne. The chilli in this instance is sweet rather than strong, so instead of a kick you get a far more subtle, warm and tangy flavour sensation that lingers deliciously on your tongue. Everything combines in a great tasting snack or light meal with both a dash of Italian and a hint of the Orient.
