    1. 1
      In a large saucepan of boiling salted water cook the chard ribs for 7 minutes, add the leaves and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Drain the chard, rinse it under cold water to stop the cooking, and pat it dry between paper towels. Finely chop the chard. (The chard may be prepared 2 days in advance and kept chilled in a zip lock plastic bag.).
    2. 2
      In a heavy skillet cook the onion in 1/3 cup of the oil over moderately low heat, stirring until it is softened, add the chard, the parsley, and salt and pepper to taste, and cook the mixture, stirring for 5 minutes. Stir in the tuna and cook the mixture until the tuna has just heated through.
    3. 3
      In a kettle of salted boiling water cook the spaghetti until it is al dente, drain it well, and in a large bowl toss it with the tuna mixture, the wine vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle additional olive oil over the pasta just prior to service.
    4. 4
      Serves 12 as part of an Italian Christmas Eve Buffet Dinner.
