Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until beginning to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Add tuna with oil, capers, and crushed red pepper flakes; heat through.

  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water for 1 minute less than the package instructs, about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the starchy pasta water.

  • Add the cooked pasta to the pan and mix to combine. Add some of the pasta water and toss lightly until the pasta is tender yet firm to the bite, 1 to 2 more minutes. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve immediately.

A nice recipe as submitted, but for my family I used Whole Grain Pasta, & added some Garlic, Spinach & Crimini Mushrooms. We topped it off with freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese. Fantastic! Read More

Thank you, Enzo, for this delicious pantry pasta dish! And thank you, Kim, for sharing it with us! Randy and I enjoyed it very much last night, along with a side of sauteed zucchini, yellow summer squash, and caramelized onions.Perfect light, tasty dish during this heatwave we're having in SoCal. I added 3 tbsp. of oil-packed julienne sun-dried tomatoes for my sun-dried loving husband, Randy, and 1 tbsp. of anchovy paste.for added depth of flavor. Randy commented that Enzo's recipe would be good with sliced cooked chicken. Thank you again, my friends, for a winning recipe! Read More

Easy and quick to make. We used flaked tuna in water, and just added a little extra oil and added the tuna water with less pasta water at the en, before the parsley. Read More

turned out really good I added 2 cloves of garlic chopped to the onions before everything else. Also topped with fresh basil and dill with the parsley. My wife liked and she doesn't always like cooked can tuna. Read More

Great for a quick dinner. Have made this a few times and it’s a keeper. Good with chickpea pasta too if you’re more health conscious. A tad too much red pepper so I adjusted the second time. The sweetness from the caramelized onion is a nice complement to the capers. Read More
