Tuna Pasta Salad with a Tomato Caper Sauce

- 10-15 capers
- 2-3 cloves of garlic (sliced) 
- half a lemon
- 1 can of tuna
- 1 box of cherry tomatoes (halved)
- parmesan cheese 
- spaghetti
- some butter (optional - i didnt' use it)

- In a pan, saute the capers in butter/oil with garlic til the garlic is browned (by the way: you should have your pasta cooking)
- Add the cherry tomatoes and stew until a sauce-like consistency.
- Drain the can of tuna, and add into the pan and continue cooking
- Squeeze the juice of half a lemon to the sauce (this will add more flavor to it, and the capers will have already added the saltiness - therefore, there's no need for salt - the parmesan later will also add more saltiness).
- When the pasta is ready, drain, and toss into the sauce and continue stewing for another 2-3 minutes (until all at the same temperature).
- When ready to serve, spoon into the plate and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and enjoy!!

I hope you like this recipe, I kinda threw it together as it was really easy to make - probably took only 15 minutes and I find it super healthy compared to all the other types of pasta I've been making.. Trying to tweak my meals to be healthier.
