Lazy Tuna Mentaiko Spaghetti
1 packet mentaiko spaghetti sauce (I use S&B Spicy Cod Roe Spaghetti Sauce - there are 2 sauce sachets inside each packet, as well as shredded nori seaweed)
1 can tuna, drained (preferably in olive oil)
- Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions, less one minute.
- Add the drained tuna and mentaiko sauce to the spaghetti, and combine well over low heat.
- Sprinkle with shredded nori and serve immediately.
