This pasta salad is a little different: the dressing is made with olive oil and anchovies. This is a good, light meal for the summer.

  • Cook penne in salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain. Rinse under cold running water until completely cooled, and then drain completely.

  • Meanwhile, place tuna in a skillet with water, white wine, and lemon juice. Cover, and cook until done. Break fish into chunks.

  • Combine broccoli, penne, fish, tomatoes, cheese, olives, walnuts, garlic, and parsley in a large serving bowl.

  • Heat olive oil in small pan over low heat. Cut anchovy fillets into small pieces, add to the olive oil, and mash with a fork until they dissolve. Do not let oil get too hot. Pour oil-anchovy mixture over salad. Toss, and serve immediately.

This is fabulous! I used canned tuna in olive oil instead of albacore because i do not have it here in Prague. It goes down great with a glass of white wine. What a wonderful light highly refreshing recipe. thanks Christine:o) Read More
