Along the lines of tuna pasta, boulangere's First Night in Florence Spaghetti is a dream. I served it to a friend who had a version of this in Tuscany who promptly declared B's recipe to be far superior! It is light, flavorful, and to paraphrase boulangere, it puts itself together very easily. http://thesolitarycook.wordpress.com/2012/02/08/first-night-in-florence-spaghetti-3/

Make more of a tuna pasta salad. For the tuna, leave out the mayo and instead make an italian style tuna salad with olives, very finely diced red onion, tomatoes, capers, parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Then mix the tuna with regular or whole wheat pasta cooked to al dente. Add lemon juice, olive oil to coat. Adjust seasoning as necessary.
