  • 150g essential Waitrose Linguine
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 x 80g can John West Infusions Tuna Lemon & Thyme
  • 6 basil leaves, roughly torn
  • 1 tbsp essential Waitrose Grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese


  1. Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling water for 10 minutes according to the packet instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small frying pan and cook the garlic and tomatoes for 2 –3 minutes until softened but still holding their shape.

  3. Drain the pasta and return to the pan, off the heat. Add the tomato mixture, tuna, basil and Parmigiano Reggiano, and toss lightly together. Divide between bowls, add a good grinding of black pepper and serve.

Cook’s tip

Try stirring through cooked long grain rice instead of pasta for a delicious, gluten-free variation on this dish.
