Pasta with tuna

Pasta with tuna

This is a very traditional dish in Italy. It’s that kind of dish, that you do at your home, when you want to be a little bit lazy, and you want to prepare some pasta with very little effort. You need some pasta, some tuna (the marinated one, you find it in cans with oil), and some olives and capers.

The ingredients are very “italian”, so you may have problems in finding them abroad. But once you find them, you can store them in your sideboard (in the kitchen) for a quite long time.
