Tuna Puttanesca with Penne from Everyday with Rachael Ray

I love Tuna with pasta. I think it comes from my childhood love of tuna noodle casserole. This is a bit more grown up but just as easy.

Start boiling some water and lets grab our ingredients!

You need some fabulous garlic.


Kalamata Olives

Tomatoes, Tuna and crushed red pepper.

I am using some Penne pasta, but you can use bowtie or whatever you like.

Give the garlic a rough chop

do the same to the capers

fish out some olives and give them some chop action also.

Get the tuna in a skillet with the garlic and the red peppers.

Add in the olives and the capers.

drop in the tomatoes and parsley and give it a stir, let it simmer for 5 minutes.

Get your pasta out of the water and into the pan with your sauce. Give it a stir and you are ready to serve!

This has so many awesome flavors going on. This is one of those meals that tastes like it cooked for hours when it actually only took a few minutes.

Thanks again for dropping by my blog and for leaving comments and sending emails. I appreciate each and every one of them! Thanks to those who have given me the thumbs up on Stumble Upon, you guys are great!!!
