Ingredients
  • 12 ounces penne, cooked until al dente
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 small whole dried hot red pepper
  • 4 anchovies, finely chopped
  • 1 small red and yellow bell pepper, finely julienned

  • Two 6-oz cans tuna fish, packed in oil, drained and crumbled
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley for garnish
Directions

Boil pasta until al dente. Saute onions in olive oil for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add hot pepper, anchovies and whisk in until anchovies dissolve into a paste. Add peppers and celery and saute for 5 minutes or until tender but still somewhat crunchy. Stir in capers and tuna and cook just to warm the tuna through. Season to taste with salt; remove hot pepper; add black pepper if you wish. Drain pasta and return to pasta pot; add sauce and toss; transfer to serving bowl & garnish with parsley.
