How to make tuna pasta with extra virgin Olive Oil

Original recipe serves 4.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 1/5 bunch of parsley 
  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • 1 can of white tuna
  • 1/2 to 2/3 a cup of Papa Vince Raw Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 lb. of Pasta (any pasta you like works. Our favorite is Penne)

Instructions

1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat.
2. While waiting for the water to boil, chop the tomatoes, the garlic and the parsley and place in the blender.
3. Add tuna and Extra Virgin Olive oil and blend all together.
4. Once the water is boiling, stir in the Penne, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite (al dente), about 8 minutes.
5. Drain and cool by running cold water over the pasta in a colander set in the sink.Add pepper and salt to taste.

6. Combine the sauce with the cooked pasta and serve with pecorino romano.

It is wonderful. Enjoy it!!
