Making these sauce is so easy and quickly. For this recipe we use linguine pasta similar to spaghetti but wider. It is cooked in only 6 - 7 minutes. First cook the pasta in a large saucepan of water then drain leaving some water on the side. Be sure not to overcook the pasta - leave it al dente.
For the sauce, heat the oil in heavy-bottom saucepan and fry chopped garlic and parsley for a few minutes, then pour crushed tomatoes and cook for 5 - 6 minutes. Drain tuna from the oil, and flake it to the smaller pieces. Add it to the sauce (leaving 1/4 for garnishing pasta once served).
In the end, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss the pasta with the sauce, loosening with a little pasta water if necessary. Garnish with remaining tuna and chopped parsley and serve on the hot plates. Enjoy immeditately!
Instead of crushed tomatoes you can use strained tomatoes known as passata di pomodoro. Crushed tomatoes are thicker than passata. In this case skip adding pasta water as the passata has thinner consistency.
