Spaghetti with tuna fish

Susanna Meucci

This recipe was sent in by Susanna Meucci from Italy

This is very easy and quick to be made. It is fresh and colourful. The ingredients are low in calories and rich in omega3. It seems an ordinary recipe but the secret is to put a lot of oregano and basil and the taste will be excellent!! It serves 4 people.
