Spaghetti with tuna is one of my favourite pasta dishes. When I want something quick and easy for a weeknight meal, I reach for the tuna. What if you don't like fish? Then this is perfect. The taste and texture is actually closer to a veal sauce than one made with fish.
I've made this recipe a few times and it is awesome! The last time, I used fresh yellow fin tuna in place of the canned tuna. I cheated by not making the sauce of this recipe the last time by using Chef John's "Hide The Little Fish" pasta/pizza sauce that I had leftover in the fridge and it was great! I prefer using imported pasta from Italy because it is pressed through bronze extruding equipment that gives the pasta more texture and that makes any sauce stick to it a little more. Another tip: ~ 1 teaspoon of anchovy paste equals 1 anchovy filet. I keep a tube of anchovy paste in my fridge for sauce recipes like this or for my Caesar salad dressing recipe. - 13 Apr 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I probably shouldn't rate this because I left out a couple key ingredients but I loved it so much I just had to. Plus I can only imagine it would be even better with the full ingredients. This is what I changed. I left out the capers and anchovies because I didn't have any. Also I used red wine instead of white because that's what was open. Also used dry parsley instead of fresh. Other than that, I made it as specifies and boy was it delicious. I will update this rating when I make it again with all the right ingredients. - 09 Apr 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Fantastic pantry meal. Loved the flavors. I didn't drain my oil packed tuna. - 21 Mar 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
