sometimes i have these days that i don't have any time to shop and just hope that i have the right ingredients at home in order to make a simple but very tasteful meal. well, i found this very 'easy' dish in the book easy by bill granger . it uses ingredients like canned tuna (by fish tales, sustainable caught tuna fish), zucchini and, lucky me, fresh herbs from my small vegetable garden that i always have as a basic stock. by the way, i recently won this book via a lottery and i really never win anything! it's a nice book with beautiful photos by mikkel vang. posted by nathalie

300g spaghetti
sea salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
3 small zucchini or 1 large one shaved in ribbons
2 chopped cloves of garlic 
grated rind and the juice of a lemon
a handful of roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
a handful of chives
a handful of basil leaves
1 canned tuna of 160g, leaked and in big chunks

boil the spaghetti and rinse and drain it. 
meanwhile place a large frying pan on a high heat with some olive oil.
add the zucchini ribbons for 2-3 minutes. 
take them out of the frying pan and set aside.
turn the heat down to medium heat and add the rest of the olive oil and the garlic, fry for 1 minute, 
than add the lemon zest.
add the zucchini ribbons with the parsley, chives, tuna and finally the spaghetti.
to make it more tasteful add, if you like, some lemon zest and black pepper.
