Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil and cook pasta according to instructions on the package until al dente.
Mash the tuna with a fork and mix with lemon zest, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, basil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large frying pan and fry the anchovies for a few minutes. Add garlic and capers and cook for a little longer, stirring constantly. Add tuna mixture and tomatoes and simmer for about 5 minutes.
