Three quarters fill a big pan with water, add a teaspoon of salt and set to boil. In a medium frying pan add a splash of olive oil and set on a medium heat. Throw in the finely chopped garlic and sunflower seeds and cook for 2 minutes.

Chop the tomatoes and add to the frying pan. Half a can of chopped tomatoes are a really tasty alternative. Add the sliced olives, salt, pepper and mustard to the frying pan and then squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. Let that cook 2 minutes more.

When the water is boiling, add the pasta and cook according to the instructions on the packet. When the pasta is cooked, drain the water and mix the sauce with the pasta. Serve in bowls with a few more seeds on top. Enjoy!
