Fettuccine with Tuna, Capers, and Olives
Fettuccine with Tuna, Capers, and Olives
(Fettuccine con Tonno, Capperi e Olive)
 
 
Ingredients:

Coarse salt
1 pound dried fettuccine pasta
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
6 anchovy fillets, rinsed, dried, and minced
1 and 1/2 cups canned tomato puree
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and chopped
1/4 cup Gaeta olives, pitted and chopped
14 ounces excellent-quality tuna preserved in olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

Directions:

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.

Add the pasta and cook just until 'al dente', about 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a wide, deep saute pan set over medium heat.

Add the garlic and cook until golden-brown, about 2 minutes.

Add the anchovies and cook for 2 minutes more.

Stir in the tomato puree and capers.

Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid, then strain the pasta.

Stir the olives and tuna into the sauce, then gradually stir in the reserved pasta water until the sauce attains a pleasing consistency.

Add the hot pasta and toss.

Season with pepper and toss again.

To serve, divide the hot pasta among individual warmed bowls, topping each serving with some chopped parsley. Makes 4 servings.

That's it!
