Whether you have heard of spaghetti de tuna or not doesn't matter... its just delicious and that's what matters most. Yes, Italians do make this dish. Italians living on the seaside eat a lot of seafood and pasta with it... ever heard of 'Frutti de Mare'? That means fruit of the sea.
For this dish you will need: tomato sauce, canned tuna in oil, onion, red pepper flakes, garlic, fresh dried herbs and linguine. Essentially, the sauce is an Arrabbiata sauce... spicy hot tomato.
To begin, chop one onion and 2 cloves of garlic to saute in olive oil. Once browned, add one large can of crushed tomatoes, 1/2 tsp of sugar, 1 tsp of red pepper flakes (1/2 depending on your taste buds or more if your brave), fresh dried herbs: rosemary, mint and oregano and the canned tuna un-drained. Let simmer while you start a pot of water to boil for the linguine.
