Another Aligue Dish: Tuna Aligue Pasta

As I still had half a bottle of aligue in the fridge, I thought I'd try my hand at another dish. I read about the concept somewhere on the Internet but I can't remember where.

Anyway, since one of our favorite dishes is tuna pasta, I thought I'd add a twist to it. I called tuna aligue pasta (very creative, no?).

What I used:

-spaghetti noodles
-1 can of Century tuna (solid in vegetable oil)
-1 can of hot and spicy Century tuna
-some garlic
-olive oil
-crushed canned tomatoes
-aligue

What I did:

I sauteed the garlic in olive oil and then added the tomatoes when the garlic turned brown. After 30 seconds or so I added the tuna. Sometimes I drain the oil first but this time I didn't (I don't know why). Then came the aligue (I added more this time, about 4 tablespoons). Stirred...maybe 2 or 3 minutes.

At this point, the smell was so good! I then added salt to taste, some Italian seasoning (McCormick), and powdered cayenne pepper. More stirring...then I tried it - not bad. More salt and Italian seasoning and then I tossed the cooked pasta in.

That's it! It is not as tasty as the shrimp aligue pasta that I made last week (but then again that was shrimp!) but I think it's a nice variation to the good old plain tuna pasta.
