I like to think of myself as a chef… One that uses other people’s recipes :)
Preferably the ones found on Epicurious and The Food Network. I also like to try these recipes to make sure that they are actually as good as they look.
My husband has been on a healthy eating kick.
Not to say that we have horrible eating habits, but I do enjoy the occasional greasy burger from Top Notch (Chicago) and a few OKE DOKE corn puffs here and there (don’t judge me).
In a quest to satisfying our pallets and for the sake of trying something new, I perused thefoodnetwork.com and picked recipes that were easy to cook (not time consuming) and that were visually pleasing.
Below is what ensued-
The recipe calls for the following ingredients:
12 ounces linguine
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic (thinly sliced)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons capers, drained
4 basil leaves, torn, plus more for garnish
1 5ounce can albacore tuna, packed in olive oil
Freshly ground pepper :)
Because I’m a rebel, I omitted the capers. Besides no one really likes them! Or do they?

Until next time hungry ones :)
