How to prepare a delicious Olive and Tuna Pasta

Cook the rigatoni pasta in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water until 'al dente; ' 8 - 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large saucepan set over a moderate heat until hot.

Add the garlic and fry for 30 seconds, adding the tuna, and passata. Stir well and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the olives, stir well, and season to taste.

Drain the pasta when ready and tip into the sauce, stirring and tossing to coat in the sauce.

If the sauce is a little dry, add some of the cooking liquid from the pasta to loosen it.
