Watch Chef John make a super-simple but incredibly flavorful tuna sauce for spaghetti. It’s the genius choice for busy weeknights, when Italian comfort food is what you crave. For this pasta, look for the olive oil-packed tuna. It’s more expensive than the water-packed kind, but for this recipe, it’s the way to go. And you can use the olive oil in the recipe! You’ll create a flavorful foundation starring minced garlic, capers, white wine, red pepper flakes, and a briny anchovy. You’ll add tomatoes, simmer the sauce briefly, and then toss in the tuna and some chopped fresh parsley. And that’s it! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Spaghetti al Tonno. Finish with a splash of olive oil, a dusting of Parmesan, and some fresh parsley. See more Chef John videos >>
