Spaghetti with chargrilled vegetables and tuna flakes

Lately my weekends were mainly spend on tidying up my garden for spring display. That explains my lack of activities and updates on my blog. Another good reason is , weather has been of spring theme even we're still officially in winter. But nevertheless, I enjoyed the earlier spring anyway :-) and fresh air outside.
I also tend to cook easy meal for lunch so that I can maximize the time spend on daylight outside :-). Here's an easy recipes and quite healthy.

Spaghetti with chargrilled vegetables sauce and tuna flakes

  • half a bag of dry spaghetti
  • half a bottle Bertolli chargrilled vegetables sauce
  • 1 small can of tuna flakes
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • a bunch of corriander finely chopped
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • some black pepper
  • some grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • a dash of sea salt
