Delicious Spaghetti Recipe with Tuna Sauce, Juicy Tomatoes and Cheese
This right here is one of my favourite food treats to myself! Sometimes, I hear myself moaning with pleasure when I indulge in this delicious spaghetti treat.
As a pesca-ovo vegetarian, this dish is a delightful fusion of spaghetti, diced tomatoes, flaked tuna and lots of cheese to top it all off! Plus I add a few other seasonings to have you begging for more.
It is a very simple dish that you can use for lunch or dinner (supper) since it is quite filling. Enjoy it as much as I do.
