Eliche with Tuna and Cilantro

It has been awhile since I updated this blog.  So I decided to prepare a simple pasta dish which was shared by my sister a few years back.  I didn't have a written recipe to follow, so I did it from my memory of how I think it was prepared.  The result was delicious, so here goes:

Eliche Pasta (or any pasta of your choice)
Canned Tuna (chunks or flakes in water)
Large Onions
Cilantro (Coriander Leaves)

Olive Oil

Chili Powder
Turmeric Powder

Salt (to taste)

Cook pasta according to packet instructions.
(Don't forget to add salt and oil to the water.)

Finely chop onions, garlic and cilantro.
 Place wok on stove.
Add olive oil.
Add chopped garlic.
Turn on the stove.
When using olive oil, light the stove AFTER adding the oil.
 When the garlic appears softened, add the chopped onions.
 Add the chili powder and turmeric powder, if using. 
 When the onions begin to brown, drain the tuna and add to the wok.
 When the tuna is well mixed, add the chopped cilantro.
 Mix well.
 Add the cooked pasta.
 Stir well until the pasta is completely coated with the other ingredients.
Taste for salt before adding any.  (The water to cook the pasta was salted and the canned tuna is also already salted.)
Bon Appetit!
(Enjoy your meal!)
