Fideos con Atun – Spaghetti and Tuna

Fideos de Atun


  • 1 green pepper,
  • 1 onion,
  • 3 garlic gloves, all finely chopped,
  • 1 jar of Tomate frito casero,
  • a glass white wine,
  • 1 chicken or fish cube, (I used left over fish stock, even tastier)
  • a bay leaf.
  • Tabasco Sauce (optional)
  • yellow food colouring or saffron.
  • 2 tins tuna


1, Drizzle a pan with olive oil, saute the chopped vegetables until soft, then add the tomate frito and the wine, the chicken or fish cube and the bay leaf.

2, Simmer for about half an hour, I blended this mixture as I like a smooth sauce but it is not necessary.

3,  Add the spaghetti to the mixture and simmer for about 10 minutes adding more stock if necessary until al dente or desired consistency.

4, Finally add 2 tins of drained tuna chunks. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
