I cannot adequately express my enthusiasm for this recipe! Ladies, teach your hubbies to make it and always have canned tuna in the house so that if you're ever indisposed, he'll have a tasty, easy meal he can make for the natives at home. This is the best of the two worlds of utterly delicious and utterly simple!
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (cherry are best but any fresh tomatoes work)
  • 2 cans tuna
  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • ¼ C parsley, chopped
  • Optional: red pepper flakes and/or capers
  1. Bring water to boil and cook spaghetti
  2. In the meantime, saute garlic in oil (and capers if using)
  3. Add cherry tomatoes and salt; cover for five minutes, allowing tomatoes to soften
  4. Add tuna and parsley
  5. Toss with pasta and serve immediately
