One onion - diced
2 tins of Tuna brine or oil (do NOT drain)
Cupfull of sliced mushrooms
Two tomatoes - cubed
2 Teaspoons of sugar
Two teaspoons of Mixed herbs
Spaghetti - cooked (+- 500gr for 4 adults)
Grated cheddar Cheese - optional

If you are using tuna in oil - use the oil to fry the onions in untill soft (otherwise use a dash of olive oil), add mushrooms, fry till soft.

Add tomatoes (sprinkle sugar over - to reduce acidicy)

Sprinkle mixed herbs over tomaote mixture simmer untill soft.

Add tuna (brine as well), simmer for a couple of minutes, stir to ensure that tuna is mixed well with other recipes. Do not let it become to dry - you need the moisture for mixing with the spaghetti.

Dish up cooked spaghetti and spoon tuna over - or mix the tuna with the spaghetti and then dish up.

Add cheese over tuna and spaghetti.
