      Tuna Pasta (Piccata without butter?)

      In my scavenging excursions, I picked up a whole bunch of slightly dented Genova olive oil packed tuna for 99 cents each. I love this tuna but it's not really something I would put in a standard mayo based tuna salad sandwich and it's expensive so I don't normally buy it but then I needed to figure out what to do with it other than my Mediterranean style tuna salad. Poked around and combined a couple of recipes and came up with this. I love it and so does my husband so it's a win-win.

      This is for one person.

      Pasta for one, pasta water reserved
      One 5 oz can olive oil packed tuna, not drained
      1 1/2 garlic cloves sliced or chopped
      2 tbsp capers, chopped, rinsed (salt packed or regular)
      1 tsp crushed red pepper
      2 tbsp of dried parsley or 1/4 cup fresh
      1 tbsp lemon juice or more to taste
      1/8 cup olive oil
      black pepper to taste

      Cook pasta for one in heavily salted water (I like angel hair but it doesn't really matter)

      In a pan over medium heat, cook the entire contents of the tuna can and the garlic for five minutes.

      Add one cup or so of the pasta water and all of the other ingredients except for the black pepper. Cook down for about two minutes.

      Put the pasta in the pan, stir then cook down until it's no longer liquid and more of a sauce. Just a few minutes, if that.

      Add black pepper to taste and serve.
