Pasta Fresca Con Torno
Fresh Pasta with Tuna

by James Belardo 

One prefect summer pasta using fresh vegetables from the garden, it’s the best!

Ingredients
3 small cans tuna (250g)
1 clove of garlic (depending on size of cloves)
2-4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
handful cherry tomatoes (halved)
Fresh basil
Fresh Spinach or Arugula
Fresh Chicory or radicchio
Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) (optional)
grated Pecorino Romano Cheese

Pasta (suggested)
250 g. Fusilli

Directions
1. Cook pasta al dente; when adding the pasta to the boiling water (salted) you can begin making the sauce.

2. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add minced garlic (and peperoncino or hot peppers) and slowly cook until color starts to brown (be careful not to burn the garlic, it will turn bitter).
