Tagliatelle with chili oil, leafy greens and tuna – SWR4

Chili and lemon oil give the tagliatelle a spicy and fresh note. This goes well with tuna and is a great summer snack!


Jens Alinia


500 g narrow tagliatelle (linguine, fettuccine) or spaghetti
Season with salt and pepper
about 100 g of spinach, rocket or chard salad
3 firm, fragrant, seedless tomatoes, thinly sliced
about 60 g Pecorino or Parmesan, grated
5-6 chili oil
2 tbsp lime juice
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
350 g of fresh tuna, thinly sliced, size
2-3 tsp teriyaki sauce (supermarket)
2 lemons, quartered

“People who want to eat pasta like this all year round – even in the summer! This version with tuna, lime, chilli oil and young leafy greens is quick and very tasty and light.”


Bring water to a boil in a large pot, then salt generously! For every 100 grams of pasta, you need 10 grams of salt and one liter of water. So here five liters of water and 50 g of salt, which corresponds to five pointed spoons! Cook the steak to taste – preferably al dente.

Whisk the chili oil, lime juice, garlic and two-thirds of the cheese in a jar with a lid.

Drain the pasta, set aside a cup of pasta water and Quickly mix the lentils with the oil-lime chili mixture and the leafy greens in a bowl or deep pan.. When serving, carefully fold in the tomato wedges immediately or later.

If the pasta seems too dry, add pasta water or a little oil. Now that tuna fish also bites.

Arrange on plates, sprinkle with remaining Parmesan, pepper and top each with a lemon quarter.

Corinne’s tip: You can easily make your own chili oil. To do this, soak the cloves, maybe some garlic, in olive oil in a cool, dark place (in the refrigerator) for at least a week.

If you want, you can use canned tuna in oil, but it is well drained!
