It would be no exaggeration to say that Italian cooks have prepared every sort of pasta sauce imaginable. Versatile, tasty, and convenient, canned tuna is, not surprisingly, a staple for a fast, uncooked sauce.

Ingredients

1 pound pasta
1/2 cup olive oil
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives
2 cans (6 ounces) oil- or water-packed tuna, drained and broken up
salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta until al dente. While pasta is cooking, whisk together remaining ingredients. Drain pasta and toss with the sauce. Serve immediately.
