This is a quick and easy way to make pasta without the fuss.


  1. Cook the pasta noodles according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile while pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in pan.
  3. Saute garlic in oil until lightly brown or fragrant is release.
  4. Stir in tuna including the vegetable oil. Cook this for 1 minute.
  5. Stir in the cooked pasta and mix. Remove from heat.
  6. Season with salt. Add more salt and dried basil leaves according to your taste.
  7. Note: Only start cooking the tuna when your pasta is just a few minutes from getting done. That way, the pasta is mixed with the sauted tuna while it's still hot to incorporate the taste.
