This was really good! I used a giant heirloom tomato instead of canned and also added capers and it came together so quickly! Perfect for a weeknight dinner.
Inspired by the Italian dish spaghetti al tonno e pomodoro, this quick and healthy pasta became a staff favorite at EatingWell. If you keep canned tuna and whole-wheat pasta on hand, you'll do what we did: return to this quick meal again and again.

My Italian dad used to make this when I was a kid, and it was fantastic! This recipe is exactly as he made it, learned from his mother. I'm going to make this myself!
I could not get out of the house today and had absolutely nothing to make for dinner. I had some tuna and some tomatoes (in a can), etc. and ran into this recipe. So very easy and my kitchen smells glorious. I used a 14.5 can of Red Pack petite tomatoes (with sweet onion) and one 14.5 can of Del Monte diced no salt added tomatoes. I did not use anchovies but added the red pepper. Paired with whole wheat pasta and we have a winner here! So delighted! Will definitely be making this again!!!!
This is a great dish, I have also made it with cooked frozen shrimp, when I don't have canned tuna on hand. :D
Very delicious and easy to make! I was so tired after work last night and needed to make something for dinner. I cooked basil seasoning in the tomatoes and tuna instead of the fresh basil.
