This recipe is based on something my mother used to make for me when I was a child. I can remember vividly siting on the back door steps of our childhood home, with all the dachshunds around us, eating this dish out of Chinese bowls.
It’s yummy and even people who aren’t big fish eaters love it.
Another great plus of this recipe is that it can normally be thrown together with things that are hiding in your pantry cupboard.
The measurements here make enough for two hungry people.
- 1 can of Olive Oil Tuna
- 1 small finely chopped Onion
- 4 Garlic cloves finely chopped
- 1 cup water Tinned Black Olives (stoned)
- 1/4 cup Chopped Oil Preserved Black Olives

- 1 tbsp Chopped Parsley
- Pasta of your choice for two
- Sauté the Onions and Garlic until soft and a little brown on the edges.
