“This is a real quick fix to a week night supper, using canned tuna. Would make a second night meal using leftover tuna. Discovered in Fine Cooking Magazine.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
  2. Meanwhile in a 11-12 inch skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until very hot.
  3. Add the tomatoes (WARNING: be careful of splattering oil and juice) and cook until tomatoes begin to collapse and their juices run and begin to thicken, 6-10 minutes.
  4. Note: If you have stubborn tomatoes, you may need to crush them a bit with a spatula or pierce them with a knife.
  5. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the tuna, pepperoncini, capers, lemon juice, butter and the lemon zest.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste and keep warm while pasta cooks.
  8. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  9. Drain well, arrange in individual serving bowls, top with sauce and parsley.
