SPAGHETTI with MR GOUDAS TUNA in OIL
Dear Friends and Spaghetti Lovers:
The recipe I am going to reveal to you will cost you a fortune in a fancy Italian restaurant. However, when prepared at home, it is very inexpensive.
Use a large pot half-filled with water.
Bring the water to a boil (lots of bubbles and steam).
Add a can of Mr. Wu (by Mr. Goudas) Chicken Broth for a flavour boost.
Add enough spaghetti for 2 people, enough to fill the circle created with the thumb and forefinger.
Allow this to boil until tender (9 minutes). Do not overcook.
You will notice the pasta dancing around like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
(In case you don't recognise these names we would like to advise you that they were the best dancing couple the world has ever seen!)
Add a pinch of salt and few drops of oil to prevent spaghetti from sticking.
In the meantime, using a large frying pan, heat 1/4 cup of olive oil.
Add 1 chopped onion and allow to simmer until light golden in colour.
Add 2 or 3 cloves of thinly sliced garlic to the onions.
Add 1 can of Tuna in oil to the simmering onion and garlic.
If you are in Canada, we recommend the following brands:
Unico, Mr. Goudas or Aurora.
Drain the spaghetti and rinse with hot water.
Add spaghetti to the sauted onion and garlic.
Gently mix the ingredients together allowing the oil to penetrate the spaghetti.
Add some parsley, black pepper and parmesan or romano cheese.
Serve and enjoy with a Romain Lettuce Salad with Balsamic vinegar.
Here is a demonstration from Stephen Musgopoulos, how to enjoy Spaghetti with Tuna ala olio.
Of course, these pictures are not what they call "Child's Play", but, it portrays how someone can enjoy pasta.
Over the years, I have created many, many products and I have written many recipes.
I always have one thing in my mind when creating a recipe:
I visualize that I am speaking to a beginner because people who know how to cook do not need my instructions they only need the best ingredients that I produce to work with.
I also have to mention that over the years, I have had numerous individuals correspond with me, by phone or my mail, locally, nationally or internationally, informing me that, for instance, their spouse who always did the cooking passed away recently, and that while looking through the cupboards they have found a can of beans or peas, a bag of flour or some product that they did not know what to do with.
Usually those people are the types who have no idea of what a casserole is, or a spatula, how to boil water or even turn on the stove.
Therefore, they are quite comfortable with the details in my recipes that allow them to become familiar with the cooking process, step-by-step.
And that eventually, they would be able to do a variety of cooking and would always use my products.
Spyros Peter Goudas.
