Smokin' Hot Maldives Tuna Macaroni

Smokin' Hot Maldives Tuna Macaroni

Something I whip up when am in a rush and when I don't have enough time to thaw out my well stocked frozen fresh tuna, seafood, chicken and beef.

Nope, not enough time to defrost today!

So instead I grab a can of tuna. 

Let's move on to the recipe!


Serves 2 

250 grams Penne Pasta

1 large onion coarsely chopped  

Half a bulb of garlic minced 

3 slightly ripe tomatoes each sliced in four halves 

1 small can of tomato paste 

Chopped mushrooms to your liking

10-12 Olives sliced

1 can of Maldives tuna in Olive oil

2 tspn red chilli powder

Herbs: Dried Basil & Oregano

Salt & Pepper 


- Boil the penne pasta for 12-15 minutes drain and set aside

- On high flame heat a non-stick wok or pan for 2-3 minutes

- Throw in the onions let it char a bit then stir fry it for 1 minute

-Then add the garlic, let it char for a bit and add the mushrooms stir fry for 1 minute

- Set the charred onions, garlic & mushrooms aside on a plate 

- Still on high flame place the tomato slices in the heated wok or pan, on their skin side and let it char for 2-3 minutes but don't burn them 

- Turn down the heat to medium, drain the olive oil from the fish can onto the charred tomatoes (set aside the fish for later)

- Cook the charred tomatoes in the olive oil for 2 minutes, once it starts to bubble add in the chilli powder, herbs, some salt and pepper 

- Add in the stir fried onions, garlic & mushrooms then mix it well

- Throw in the tuna and cook for 2-3 minutes

- Mix in the tomato paste, cover with a lid and cook on low heat for 5 minutes 

- Take off the lid, give it a good stir, throw in the chopped olives, fold in the pre-cooked pasta gently coating them with the tuna mixture, cover it with a lid and cook on low heat for 3-4 minutes

- Plate it, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with a generous amount of parmesan cheese
