    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    My girlfriend's father gave us some cans of this wonderful, imported Italian tuna. This recipe is my attempt at re-creating HIS recipe for pasta with tuna and red sauce. Lauren's dad would often make this for me when I came to dinner because it had contained no meat. The Italian tuna packed in oil gives this sauce a wonderully "meaty" flavor that I absolutely love. My granny's mother would also make a dish similar to this on on the Fridays of Lent when they could not have meat.

    1. 1
      In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add chopped onion and anchovy fillet, and saute until soft, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add crushed red pepper and garlic and saute for another minute.

      Add tomato sauce and reduce heat to low.

      I like to drain the oil from one of the cans and leave the oil from the second.

      Break up the large pieces of tuna with a fork or wooden spoon.
    8. 8
      Cook pasta in boiling salted water for about 7 minutes or until al dente.

      FOR TUNA LOVERS!! That is me. The italian tuna packed in oil does have a great taste. When I go to italy I make sure I take advantage of the tuna there. What a great idea in using tuna this way. I am italian and I had never thought of this combo. It is delicious!! I also added olives, like the photo. Thanks for the recipe Kosmic!!
