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.
