Ah the ancient city of Troy, knowledge of it’s whereabouts lost for many centuries, until the 1860’s when a German Archaeologist, Heinrich Schliemann journeyed to Turkey to discover the site of the famous city and succeeded!
Through the ancient rubble over many years and revisions, decided that it was a simple dish of tinned tuna and tomatoes that the Trojan’s favoured and so we are here today to reimagine this dish with modernity. 
Real talk though, this is a very simple to make, nutritious dish. It’s the reason why I like to keep a tin of Tuna and Tinned tomatoes on hand, for when you want something easy and you don’t have anything else on hand. Very simple, very easy to make, very delicious. 
Give it a go!
