  • 1 or 2 2-ounce (50 g) cans of tuna packed in oil, drained

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons salted capers, rinsed and chopped, or salt to taste
  • A handful of basil leaves, coarsely minced
Recipe Method

  1. Set pasta water to heat, salt it when it boils, and cook the pasta, draining it when it’s Al dente. In the meantime, heat the olive oil and saute the garlic and the hot pepper for a couple o minutes, being careful not to let the garlic burn. Crumble the tuna into the pot, and stir in the tomatoes and the capers. After a minute check seasoning; reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce until the pasta is done. Garnish the pasta with the shredded basil and serve at once.
  2. This could work nicely as a one-course meal with a tossed salad. If you instead want a second course, a grilled fish would be quite nice, again accompanied by a tossed salad.
