Penne with Tuna Sauce

30 Min

Come on, you know what to do with this one! With a salad and some crusty bread, you'll have a dinner your family will love. It's like a romantic "fisherman's lunch" on the Italian coast.

What You'll Need

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 6 anchovy fillets
  • 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes, broken up
  • 2 cans (6 ounces each) tuna
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound penne or ziti
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons butter

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat; add the onion and sauté until transparent, about 5 minutes.  Add the garlic and continue to cook until the onion starts to brown.

  2. Add the anchovies, crushing them with a spoon. Add the tomatoes; reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes.

  3. Drain the tuna and break into large flakes; add to the tomato sauce. Add the salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. The juices will evaporate and the sauce will thicken.

  4. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta to desired doneness; drain and place in a large serving bowl. Pour the sauce over the pasta. Add the parsley and butter and toss. Serve immediately.
