This is wonderful...I used albacore tuna...the flavors work great together...loved the fried capers...I'm going to keep that idea handy...I didn't grill my tuna just fried it in a cast iron pan...which I had used the leftover butter for that...next time...I agree...don't put cheese on this...it's great as is...I cut the recipe in half and also I cut back on the pasta...

A fantastic combination of pasta, tuna and capers. I followed exactyl the directions, except that I broiled the tuna. The capers needed exactly 12 minutes and were wonderful crisp. Yes, save the butter for later use, it is so delicious too. I drizzled the butter on slices of white bread and toasted it later. Do not overcook the tuna and it will have a fantastic taste. My tuna just need about two minutes on each side. The lemon juice in the sauce supports all the different flavors and adds a fantastic fresh note. Next time I might use some more lemon juice or serve the dish with lemon slices. If you miss cheese for topping, don't use cheese here. This dish is so wonderful the way described here. I only need about 30 minutes, so this pasta recipe is easy and fast to make. Thanks for sharing.
