Method

  1. Cook the pasta in a pan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, place a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the capers, fry until super-crispy, then scoop out and put aside, leaving the fragrant oil behind.
  3. Halve and add the tomatoes, then sprinkle in most of the oregano.
  4. Drain and flake in the tuna, add 2 ladlefuls of pasta cooking water, and simmer until the pasta is done.
  5. Drain the pasta, reserving a mugful of cooking water, then toss the pasta into the tuna pan, loosening with a splash of reserved cooking water, if needed.
  6. Taste, season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper, then dish up. Sprinkle over the crispy capers and the remaining oregano from a height, drizzle with 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, and tuck in.
