My Lemon and Tuna Pasta

This is one of the simplest recipes, takes no time, and very tasty and filling!

Ingredients (serves 2 or maybe just 1 if really hungry and fuelling up for a long night under the skies)

Pasta (I use Penne) enough to fill one bowl
1 can of plain tuna in oil 185g
1 Medium sized onion finely chopped
1 clove garlic crushed and chopped
Juice of one lemon (or 2 if you like it stronger tasting!)
Olive oil
Sundried tomatoes
White wine
Pitted Kalamata olives (if you like them! but who doesn't!)

Put the pasta on to boil. Drain the tine of tuna and flake it. Sweat of the onion and garlic with a little bit of the olive oil in a non stick saucepan and some pepper, once it is translucent, add tuna, stir and heat through then add a bit more oil, lemoin juice and the tomatoes and olives. Cook stirring for 2 or 3 minutes then add about 1/3 cup of wine and simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Once pasta is OK, drain and add to the sauce, stir through and serve with a nice glass of wine (I like a really nice Pinot Noir, works really well for some reason!) and maybe a bit of salad.

Then head for the observing field.
