Lemon Spaghetti with Tuna and Broccoli

Serves 2 Costs 4.00 per recipe Costs 2.00 per serving Takes 10 mins to cook Takes  10 mins to prepare 1 5 a day portions


350g spaghetti
250g broccoli, cut into small florets
2 shallots, finely chopped
85g pitted green olives, halved
2 tbsp capers, drained
198g can tuna in oil (or two salmon steaks)
zest and juice 1 lemon


Boil the spaghetti in water for 6 mins (or as per packet instructions).

Add the broccoli and boil for 4 mins more or until both are just tender.

Meanwhile, mix the shallots, olives, capers, tuna and lemon zest and juice in a big bowl.

Drain the pasta and broccoli, add to the bowl and toss really well with  lots of black pepper.

Serve with a green salad for a lovely tasty and quick meal.

Alternatively, for a special occasion, use two salmon or tuna steaks rather than the tinned tuna - pan fry these whilst boiling the pasta and veg.  Rather than mixing them into the bowl with the dressing ingredients, place them over the dressed pasta and serve.
