This Italian-inspired dish is made with angel hair, fresh tomato and tuna. Enjoy with a bottle of Italian pinot grigio.


  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 3-1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 anchovies, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
  • 2 diced fresh, medium-sized tomatoes
  • 1 6-ounce can chunk light tuna, drained and flaked
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil


  1. Cook the angel hair according to package directions, drain, return to pot and drizzle with 1-1/2 tablespoons of oil. Gently toss to coat.
  2. In the meantime, heat the remaining oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and sauté the garlic for 1 minute.
  3. Add the anchovies and the red pepper and cook for 1 additional minute, then add the tomatoes, reduce the heat to medium, and cook mixture for 9 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  4. Add the tuna to the mixture and stir to combine. Continue to cook for 2 minutes and then remove from heat.
  5. Place the pasta in a large pasta dish and top with the tuna sauce. Sprinkle the dish with basil and serve immediately.
