I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Tuna and Spaghettini

By now I guess you realize that I love pasta!
Here's an easy recipe.

1 lb (454 g) pkg spaghettini
170 g can albacore tuna, drained
1-2 tbsps capers
2 tbsps chopped sundried tomatoes in oil
2 slices capicola, coarsely chopped (or prosciutto, ham)
1/3 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
about 20 basil leaves
some fresh parsley
parmesan cheese

Cook the spaghettini as directed on package reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water when draining.

Heat olive oil in a medium-sized pan. Add garlic and salt heating just until garlic starts to turn very lightly brown. Add capicola and red pepper flakes. Cook until capicola is a little crispy.

Add tuna, breaking it up. Add balsamic, sundried tomatoes and capers.
You can use store bought capers or give these ones a try...

Toss pasta with the sauce adding as much reserved pasta water for the consistency you like. Add chopped basil.

Top with chopped parsley and parmesan.
