Time: 25 minutes. Salty green olives, capers, and chile give a delicious spark to this dish, setting it leagues beyond good old tuna and noodles.
3/4 pound whole-wheat linguine
12 pimento-stuffed green olives
4 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons capers
1 chopped serrano chile
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
1 can (6 oz.) oil-packed albacore tuna (look for pole- or troll-caught), drained
Salt to taste
How to Make It
Cook pasta as package directs, reserving 1/2 cup cooking water.
Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse olives, garlic, capers, and chile into a paste.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook paste in olive oil, stirring, until slightly thickened. Add tomatoes, tuna, drained pasta, and reserved cooking water. Cook and stir a few minutes to blend flavors. Add parsley and salt to taste.
