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.

Pizza Con Zucchine E Aceto BalsamicoPizza With Courgettes & Balsamic Glaze

I love grilled courgettes, but sometimes it’s just a hassle to prepare them, particularly if I’m hungry and need feeding right now! Here I can get the same flavour and texture by simply tossing them on top of this fantastic pizza. It looks amazing with all the overlapping circles of cheese and courgette – a real showstopper.

Chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two cookies – what more do you need from life?! Kids love cucciolone, and in my experience they really enjoy getting involved in making them too.

Involtini di Salmone con Mascarpone e SenapeWrapped Salmon With Dijon Mustard & Mascarpone Sauce

For many people, salmon is the king of fish – it has a firm, meaty texture and a beautiful pink colour.
