- Turn up the heat and add your tomatoes, tuna and a good pinch of salt.
- Break the tomatoes up using the back of a spoon, then bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes.
- Taste for seasoning.
- Meanwhile, cook the rigatoni in a pan of salted boiling water according to the pack instructions.
- When al dente, drain the pasta in a colander, reserving some of the cooking water.
- Toss the pasta into the tuna and tomato sauce with the roughly torn basil leaves, a glug of olive oil, the lemon zest and juice and Parmesan, and mix together well.
- Loosen the pasta with a little of the reserved cooking water if needed.
- Check the seasoning and serve immediately.
