DIRECTIONS

  • Bring 4 quarts of water to a rolling boil in a large pot (for pasta).
  • While water comes to a boil, heat the oil, about 1/2 of the garlic, red pepper flakes and capers in a 12-inch skillet, and stir frequently until mixture is fragrant and sizzling, but not browned, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the wine and simmer for about 1 more minute; add the tuna and 2 teaspoons salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the tuna is heated through - about 1 minute.
  • When water is boiling, add 1 tablespoon salt and the pasta; cook until al dente and drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking water.
  • Return the pasta to the pot and toss with the tuna mixture, the rest of the garlic, parsley, lemon zest, butter and reserved pasta water.
  • Season with ground black pepper and salt to taste; top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
  • Serve immediately!
