Garlic and Olive oil Spaghetti (Aglio et Olio) with Smoked Tuna on top


Here is another way of enjoying spaghetti when one ran out of tomato sauce... The simple garlic and oil sauce. Just added a local canned tuna called Century Tuna Inasal flavor on top so as to interest the palate of my conventional eating pack at home.

A serving for Julie-Ann
1/2 kl spaghetti
9 cloves of garlic, sliced thinly
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and ground pepper
dry basil leaves (if fresh herbs such as parsley or oregano are available, use them)
Century Tuna Inasal flavor (smoked)

How to:
Heat olive oil in pan. Add garlic slices and spread on the pan. Adjust heat to low until garlic turns medium brown. 
Add the spaghetti pasta and mix together. Put dashes of salt and ground pepper to taste. 
Add ample amount of dried basil leaves and mix. Remove from fire.
Place tuna on top and mix together just before serving.

The sliced (not minced) garlic

If you use the extra virgin olive oil, the better.
