Tuna and Farfalle Puttanesca

Source: Martha Stewart Living, February 1997


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped (3 medium cloves) garlic
  • 2 medium red onions, (1 pound), peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices lengthwise
  • 1 pound farfalle (bowtie) pasta
  • 10 canned whole plum tomatoes, seeded, sliced 1/4 inch thick lengthwise, plus 1 cup juice
  • 3 tablespoons nonpareil capers
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, (3 ounces), pitted and cut into quarters
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 oil-packed Italian-style light tuna, drained
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Bring saucepan of salted water to boil. Pour oil in large skillet; place over medium heat. Add garlic and onions; saute until onions are translucent, about 8 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta until al dente, about 11 minutes. Add tomatoes, juice, capers, rosemary, and olives to onions; add salt and pepper to taste. Raise the heat to medium high, and cook until tomatoes are heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain pasta; transfer to large serving bowl. Add sauce, tuna, and parsley; toss gently to combine.

    This was decent. Not my favorite but not bad. I couldn't find "Italian Style Light Tuna" so I used olive packed. A nice change to the normal pasta ingredients.
