Ingredients

Directions

  • Combine water, spaghetti, olives, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a large deep skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the water is absorbed and the pasta is tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in tuna, dill and oil.

Delicious! Used fettuccine, prefer it to spaghetti, enriched, not whole-wheat, all our little store had. Not an olive fan but really nice in this. Worth looking for, our Safeway stocks them in a VERY small town! Not hugely generous for four if you are greedy! Make sure you mix the tuna in well or it falls to the bottom. Would also bring the broth (yes, use veg broth if you have it) to the boil before putting in the pasta which can stick together Definitely on The List! Read More

I love this dish! Easy to make and different. I thought the olives would be hard to find but they were in with the regular ole' olives! I double the amount of the olives in the recipe because they're so good and cut the them in fourths so there's more bites of olive in each bite! I like to substitute vegetable broth for the water for more flavor and I like to add some chopped green onions when I plate the dish. Read More
