Step by Step Method

Step 1

Soak the capers in a bowl of water for 10 minutes, drain and pat dry with paper towels. Peel the garlic cloves and cut into thin slices; fry in a pan with 4 tablespoons of oil until are golden and crisp; drain them with a slotted spoon and add the capers; fry for 10-15 seconds,

Step 2

Drain and keep aside with the garlic.

Step 3

Place tuna in a pan; add the wine and a pinch of salt and cook over verylow heat for 4-5 minutes. Chop olives, and add them to the tuna with lemon zest, stir and turn off.

Step 4

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water; al dente, transfer it to the pan with the sauce, add parsley and sprinkle everything with garlic and fried capers.

Step 5

Wash and cut in half 400g cherry tomatoes, arrange in a baking dish, season with a pinch of salt and a pinch sugar; sprinkle with a heaping tablespoon of bread crumbs mixed with one of grated parmesan and one of oregano and broil under the grill for 4-5 minutes. Add them to the pasta at the last moment, before adding capers and garlic.

Very good dish! It seems more like a hot pasta/tuna salad than a casserole - but one we enjoyed. I skipped the capers but otherwise followed the directions and ingredients as stated. Leftovers will be great cold for lunches! Thanks for sharing!
