Linguine con Tonno e Olive Nere
by James Belardo

Here’s a wonderful pasta dish that may begin life as a simple ‘Aglio e Olio’ but grows into something rather special. The prep is rather quick, so it’s a great choice for a pasta dinner during the work week.

Ingredients
9+ oz. Tuna (or use fresh tuna)
1 medium sized onion
2 or 3 cloves garlic
2 anchovies (minced)
1/2 – 3/4 cup Italian black olives (infornate preferred) hand-pitted
1/4 cup capers
Olive Oil
Flat Leaf Parsley – fresh
1 cup White wine (Pinot Grigio preferred)
Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes)
salt and Pepper
Italian-style seasoned breadcrumbs

Pasta
Linguine, fettuccine or Spaghettini

Directions
1. While cooking the pasta, preheat 3 tablespoons of Extra-Virgin Olive
2. Sauté the onions in a saucepan with minced anchovies and Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes).
