  • Spaghetti calculate 80 g per person, want leftovers? Cook extra
  • Double Cream single cream will work if that’s what you have
  • Tuna we like it in spring water, use whatever tuna you have, you can easily stretch a tin of tuna for 3-4 people, these are odd times after all
  • Olives green
  • Salt and pepper


  • Get lots of water with some salt heating up on the hob in a big pan
  • Cook the spaghetti according to the packet, we like it al dente, ie with a bit of bite
  • Drain the spaghetti and add back to the pan.
  • Stir in the tuna and the olives. Followed by the cream, you want the cream to coat the pasta so add it slowly. We don’t like it with too much cream.
  • Then, and this is very important, salt and pepper. Above all lots of pepper.
