Soba Alla Tonnolese


– 2 cloves garlic, crushed
– 1 or 2 fresh tomatoes, chopped
– 1 small jar or can of tomato sauce
– 1 can tuna, drained
– oregano
– 1 pkg of soba

Sauté the garlic in some olive oil in a wok. Add the chopped tomatoes, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the tuna, mix well, pour the tomato sauce over the tuna mixture and sprinkle with oregano. Simmer for another ten minutes.

Meanwhile cook the soba noodles according to package instructions. When the noodles are ready, rinse them under cold water and add to the wok. Serve as soon as the noodles are hot.

Option: Sprinkle the dish with grated or Parmesan cheese

Soba is a type of thin Japanese noodle made from buckwheat flour so perfect for a gluten-free diet

  3. Unfortunately, most available soba noodles (at least in the US – I think this is also true in Japan) are only partly buckwheat and have significant amounts of wheat flour in them, so they are not a good choice for people on a gluten-free diet unless they are able to obtain the hard-to-find 100% buckwheat variety.
