Canned tuna is good for more than just sandwiches. Italians use it to give substance to their pasta dishes.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

Puttanesca (translated as Spicy [filtered]) is always a SPICY sauce. There is no heat in this sauce. It might be tasty, but PLEASE call it what it is, and not what it is not.

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.
