Home Cooking 101: Tuna Aglio Olio Pasta

I love olive oil-based pasta dishes. Not only it is easy to cook, but it is healthy as well. As soon as I got a bottle of Olivares Mendocinos, an Argentinian Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) brand I have tried during the Malbec World Day celebration a few weeks ago, the first dish I thought of cooking was this pasta dish. 


1 whole garlic, chopped
300 grams of pasta
Olivares Mendocinos EVOO
1 can tuna, drained
salt and pepper to taste


1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.  
2. Saute garlic in olive oil. Make sure you don't burn it. Then add tuna. 
3. Add the pasta into the tuna and garlic mixture. Season with thyme, salt, and pepper. Add olive oil if necessary. 
4. Serve with parmesan cheese. Enjoy! :P

This recipe can serve 2 to 3 persons. I used fusilli because it was the pasta available at home, but you may use other types of pasta.
