Instructions

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook according to instructions.
  2. While this is cooking, melt the Flora Buttery in a large sauté pan or frying pan.
  3. Add the garlic and chilli flakes and cook until the garlic is softened.
  4. Throw in the drained tuna and shred it up a bit with a fork.
  5. Just before the pasta is ready, set aside 1 teacup of boiling water.
  6. Drain the pasta and return it to the warm pan over a low heat.
  7. Add the rocket and the tuna mixture to the pasta in the pasta pot.
  8. Toss vigorously (tongs work well here) adding a little of the reserved pasta water to moisten (the rocket will wilt in the heat of the pasta). Serve immediately.
