Spaghetti with Tuna and Green Olives
Author: Melissa
  • 1 can good quality tuna packed in olive oil
  • ½ cup sliced green olives (approximately 12-15 large olives – I used pitted Greek but Cerignola work great too)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 box spaghetti or linguine
  1. Slice the olives and add to a large bowl
  2. Break up the tuna into small pieces and along with its oil, add it to the olives.
  3. Finely chop the parsley and add it to the bowl along with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Cook the pasta “al dente” and drain well
  5. Toss with the sauce to combine and serve warm or at room temperature.
  6. Enjoy!
