Ingredients (serves 3-4)

  • 1 tin tuna in brine
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 small jar of black olives
  • 1-2 teaspoons Italian mixed herbs (OR 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon basil)
  • salt and pepper
  • sour cream to serve (optional)

You’ll also need 3 to 4 portions of cooked rice. I stick ours in the rice cooker before I start making the sauce.

Directions

  • Throw the drained tuna, tine of tomatoes and black olives in to a saucepan together and mix. Now that we have the wee one eating with us I chop up the olives a little, but I used to just throw them in whole.
  • Add about half a tin of water to the mix to thin the sauce out a little, then season with the herbs, a pinch of salt, and some cracked black pepper.
  • Serve the sauce on the rice, with a dollop of sour cream if you like.
