sauce

200 g (7 oz) can tuna, drained

method

1. Cook the spaghetti in a large pan of salted boiling water, adding the olive oil. When almost tender, drain in a colander and return to the pan. Add the butter, toss thoroughly to coat and keep warm.

2. Remove any bones from the tuna. Put it into a blender or food processor with the anchovies, olive oil and parsley and process until the sauce is smooth. Pour in the creme fraiche and process for a few seconds to blend. Taste the sauce and season.

3. Warm 4 plates. Shake the pan of spaghetti over medium heat until it is thoroughly warmed through.

4. Pour on the sauce and toss quickly, using two forks. Garnish with the olives and serve immediately with warm, crusty bread.
