BTW it is from Italy packed in oil
Boulangere's First Night in Florence Spaghetti (although it does have cherry tomatoes)
Giardinara, an Italian pickle, that can be mild or hot. Sometimes made with tuna, or tuna later mixed in. use it to top sandwiches, as a cold pasta sauce, as an anripasto. Many recipes available from chefs, restaurants, home cooks.
There is a deli near my house that serves an italian tuna salad with black olives, cucumber & preserved lemon - with crispy focaccia. Yum!
i just made today a baked lasagna with tuna, besciamella, stir fryed onion and lots of grated parmesan cheese. no tomato sauce, simply delicious.
Well, I would have suggested First Night in Florence Spaghetti https://food52.com/recipes... but @inpatskitchen kindly beat me to it
Make a curried tuna sauce for pasta. This is a recipe from a Silician chef. Melt a stick of unsalted butter. Add red chile flakes and a generous spoon of mild curry powder. Cook on med heat for about a minute. Add tuna with the oil. Break up tuna with a fork. Remove from heat and add hot cooked long pasta. Toss well and serve immediately.
Madhut Jaffrey has a lovely tuna curry in one of her Quick Indian cookbooks. Weeknight meal.
I love a good riff on a salad nicoise. Lots of good recipes on the internet.
My quick and easy go-to (which also works very well with smoked, wild Alaskan, canned salmon) is linguine with a lemon butter sauce (1 lemon per 1-2 tbsp. butter) and chives, topped with a bit of parm if you like.
Here's a new take on the classic Tuna Salad. Added chickpeas and apple make it a refreshing alternative to the typical mayo-heavy variety: http://www.healthline.com/health-recipes/tuna-salad
First Night in Florence, hands down.
