Tuna spaghetti is a plush menu for us because minced tuna (in Japanese sometimes called まぐろ) costs around 300-400 yen per 100 gram.

  • Tuna 100 g
  • Pasta (spaghetti or other types) 125 g, boil first
  • Red onion / onion 1/3 g
  • Garlic 2 cloves
  • Chili 1, finally chopped
  • Olive oil or any vegetable oil 2 tsp
  • Tomato sauce 3 tsp or finely-chopped tomato
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Additional: cinnamon, basile, oregano, parsley, grated cheese

(1) heat the oil in low level
(2) fry onion, garlic until smelled good
(3) add tomato to pan, if you use sliced pieces wait until soft
(4) add tuna, mix well, cook 5 minutes
(5) add pasta, mix well, cook 10 -15 minutes
(6) add additional seasonings but parsley and cheese for topping

Note: cinnamon makes the extra-ordinary taste
