Recipe: Tuna fettuccine with thyme

Pasta with aromatic herbs
October 05, 2009

ThymeMany years ago, during a trip to Greece -where thyme is used on seafood and grilled fish- I found out that thyme is perfect on fish.
Use regular or wild thyme, fresh or dried, but do not prepare this pasta recipe without it!

Serves two:
200g fettuccine pasta
160g tuna oil
200ml single cream
1 onion
1 tsp of thyme leaves

Chop the onion finely. Fry in a pan with olive oil until transparent.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add fettuccine and cook until al dente.
Meanwhile add the tuna in the pan and crush it with a fork. Cook for a minute, then add the single cream and the thyme. Let thicken the cream for a couple of minutes.
Drain well the pasta and season with the tuna sauce.
