It would be no exaggeration to say that Italian cooks have prepared every sort of pasta sauce imaginable. Versatile, tasty, and convenient, canned tuna is, not surprisingly, a staple for a fast, uncooked sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound pasta
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • 2 cans (6 ounces) oil- or water-packed tuna, drained and broken up
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions:

In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta until al dente. While pasta is cooking, whisk together remaining ingredients. Drain pasta and toss with the sauce. Serve immediately.
