A day in the city.Rome that is..always makes me hungry..and hungry enough for a plate of pasta with tuna and a tomato sauce.

Best served with spaghetti or linguini.

Really a light dish cheese since there is fish on top..served with a chilled refreshing dry white wine to make this a perfect lunch or dinner. I prefer my pasta meals in the me more energy for the rest of the day. 

A handful of  fresh parsley adds a perfume to this dish and a trip  to the local open air market here in Rome was a necessary garden here at the city house.

The recipe is a simple one..


Pasta with tuna

1 lb spaghetti

1 can Albacore tuna

1 clove garlic

2 lbs fresh, red ripe tomatoes, seeded and cut

3 tblsps extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil

1 handful chopped parsley leaves


Place olive oil in saute pan. Place in garlic. When garlic begins to turn golden, place in tomatoes and wine, let simmer down, When sauce has reached its consistency thickened, place in flaked tuna. remove from heat, toss  in pasta cooked  al dente.


Serve with sprinkled parsley.

A chilled bottle of Fallenghina wine is what we are enjoying with this dish…
