Cut the cherry tomatoes and avocado and place in a bowl with the drained tuna, lemon and olive oil. If you want to, you can also add the garlic and chili peppers. Add salt and pepper and leave the bowl aside. Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water. Drain it once it is ‘al dente’ and cool it down with cold water. Add the pasta to the bowl and mix, adding some more extra virgin olive oil. Serve by sprinkling parsley and chopped spring onion on top.
