Fusilli with Tuna and Pine Nuts Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 (6-ounce) can water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
  • 12 ounces fusilli pasta 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 scallions, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 (8-ounce) bottles clam juice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
How to cook Fusilli with Tuna and Pine Nuts:
  • In a large pot of boiling water, cook the fusilli until just tender. Drain well.
  • Meanwhile, in a large nonstick saucepan, heat the oil until hot but not smoking over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Add the scallions, garlic, basil, and oregano and cook until warmed through, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the clam juice, wine, red pepper flakes, and anchovy paste. Bring to a simmer and cook for 4 minutes to reduce slightly. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the pine nuts, capers, tuna, parsley, and lemon juice. Add the pasta, toss well, and let stand for 5 minutes to absorb the liquid. Divide the mixture among 4 bowls and serve.
  • HELPFUL HINT: To toast the pine nuts, spread them out on a small baking pan and cook them in a 350°F (180°C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes; shake the pan occasionally to keep the nuts from scorching, and turn them out of the pan as soon as they're done.
