Pasta with Garlic, Tuna and Capers

Serves 4

2 - 3 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 (170g) can chunk light tuna, drained
2 tablespoons capers, drained
Salt and pepper to taste
Grated Parmesan cheese

Bring a big pot of salted water to a rapid boil. Cook pasta until al dente (as suggested on the packaging).

While linguine is cooking, heat a large skillet over high heat and lightly toast pine nuts. Remove nuts. 

 In the same skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and sauté to release the aroma. Add tuna and capers and sauté until slightly golden, about 3 minutes. 

Drain pasta and return to the pot. Add in the tuna mixture and pine nuts, season with salt and pepper and serve with fresh Parmesan cheese.
