Stages of cooking

  1. Take a deep pot and boil water for your spaghetti. As soon as it boils, add salt and spaghetti. Cook with regard to instructions mentioned on the pack. Meanwhile, let’s cook the canned tuna sauce. Chop an onion (you can use blender for that purpose) and fry it on olive oil until it becomes transparent. If needed, add a bit of water into the frying pan to prevent the onion from burning.
