Linguine with tinned tuna, olives and chilli
Linguine al tonno

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious tuna recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my linguine al tonno for you to enjoy.

Without doubt this has to be one of my father’s favourite pasta dishes. I remember when I used to live with him it was a must-have dish at least once a week but not always with the same shape of pasta. Please make sure that you never use tuna in brine for this recipe and if you like you can add some capers to the sauce.
