Watch how its done


1 Cook the pasta in unsalted water, for a few minutes less than the time it says on the pack.

2 Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan or sauté pan and fry the red pepper for a couple of minutes.

3 Pour in the pasta sauce and a few spoonfuls of water. Add the balsamic vinegar and oregano, stir and simmer for about 4 minutes.

4 When the pasta is ready (it should be almost cooked but not quite), drain it and add it to the sauce in the pan. Stir well and let it heat through for a minute then add the tuna and stir again.

5 Divide between two bowls and scatter over the basil leaves. Serve with Parmesan cheese on the side.
