Add garlic and chilli and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add tomatoes and ½ cup (125ml) cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until sauce is thickened slightly. Stir in tuna.

Notes

You can use pasta shapes instead of spaghetti and 1 small fresh red chilli (deseeded, finely chopped) instead of dried chilli.
