Tonno & Tomato Linguine

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 3/4 pound linguine
  • 1 6-ounce jar oil-packed Italian tuna, drained and flaked (Tonnino brand if you can find it)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 5 ounces baby arugula
  • 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley, plus more for garnish


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon of salt and return to a rolling boil

While the water is heating, prepare the sauce. IN a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and cook until they are soft, about 5 minutes.

At this point, add the linguine to the boiling water and cook until al dente, per the package directions.

Meanwhile, add the tuna to the sauce and gently cook for 3 more minutes. Pour in the wine and bring the sauce to a simmer. Cook until the mixture reduces by half, about 3 minutes. Season with black pepper and a little salt.

Once the linguine is ready, increase the heat under the sauce to medium-high and scoop the pasta directly into the skillet, using tongs. (Do not drain the pasta) Toss the linguine in the sauce to coat. Add the arugula and 1/2 cup of pasta water. Toss together for about 1 minute or until the arugula wilts. Add the parsley to the pasta and toss again. Add an additional 1/4 cup of pasta water if needed to loosen up the sauce.

Check the seasoning and serve immediately garnished with additional chopped parsley, a sprinkle of crushed red pepper, fresh ground black pepper and lemon wedges.
