Incredibly simple, and really good. Start to finish about 10 minutes, and my family says it tastes like good restaurant fare. The key is to use ONLY high quality ingredients. Tuna packed in olive oil is also sometimes called "tonno".
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water, with about 1 tbs olive oil. for 3-5 minutes - until the tortellini floats to the surface. Do not overcook.

- 3Drain pasta.
- 4Meanwhile, unceremoniously dump the canned tuna (with oil) into the pot.

- 6Toss together, then add drained pasta and broccoli.
