Last evening I made these delicious fettuccine with tuna sauce. This sauce recipe is one of those which I created playing with ingredients that I had at hand.
Mostly, I use fresh tomatoes for making pasta sauces, but not always I have plenty of tomatoes to make the sauce, and that is when the jar store bought sauces come into play. Even though I sometimes use jar sauces, I always start making the sauce with at least one chopped tomato, and a few cloves of garlic and then I add other ingredients of choice. Using at least one fresh tomato and fresh garlic cloves makes the sauce taste like homemade from scratch.
So here is the sauce recipe.
3 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 cloves of garlic- minced
1 medium onion- diced
1 large tomato- diced
2 cups store bought pasta sauce from jar
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
dash of freshly ground black pepper
handful of baby spinach
2 cans of tuna chunks in water (drained)
In a large pan heat the oil over a medium heat and add garlic. Cook garlic until golden brown and add onion. Cook for about 5 minutes and add diced tomato. Cook tomato, garlic and onion for 2-3 more minutes; add jar pasta sauce and tomato paste and cook until bubbles start to appear. Add salt, sugar and pepper followed by tuna. Cook five more minutes, add spinach and continue cooking for about 1-2 minutes.
