The piquant Mediterranean inspired flavours add zing to this nutty tuna cherry tomato spelt pasta dish. Perfect for a fast weeknight dinner. Spelt pasta is made with spelt – an ancient grain which many people find easier to digest than modern wheat pasta. It’s particularly good with tuna and other seafood.
Did you know: Spelt, also known as dinkel wheat, or hulled wheat, is a species of wheat cultivated since approximately 5000 BC.
Spelt was an important staple in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times; it now survives as a relict crop in Central Europe and northern Spain and has found a new market as a health food. Spelt is sometimes considered a subspecies of the closely related species common wheat, in which case its botanical name is considered to be Triticum aestivum subsp. spelta. source: wiki
