200 g beans
200 g tuna
1/2 lemon
1 tbsp capers
1 tbsp olive oil

Recipe Directions for Tuna & lemon pasta

  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for 8 minutes. Add the beans and cook for a further 3 minutes until both the pasta and beans are just tender. Meanwhile, tip the tuna and its oil into a bowl and flake the fish, keeping the pieces quite large. Stir in the lemon zest, capers, chilli and plenty of salt and pepper.
