|Step 1|| |
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook until al dente. While pasta is cooking, prepare the “sauce”.
|Step 2|| |
In a wide sauté pan, over medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil and a clove of garlic. Let it become fragrant and then add chili pepper sliced (or red pepper flakes), lemon zest and 1/4 cup of cooking water from the pasta pot. Cook briefly and let the liquid evaporate. Then add the tuna and the lemon juice, and cook for just a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat and let the flavors mingle until the pasta is ready.
|Step 3|| |
Drain the pasta and transfer to the pan. Turn on the heat, toss the pasta in the tuna/lemon sauce, until coated, for a minute or two. Remove the clove of garlic.
|Step 4|| |
Serve in bowls along with 1 or 2 tablespoons of stracciatella. Sprinkle with parsley. Before eating, make sure you stir in the stracciatella with your fork so that you obtain a nice creamy sauce.
