You probably have figured out that I LOVE to cook and get really nerdy about creating authentic homemade Italian food.
One of my favorite recipes from my favorite Italian cookbook is for “Spaghetti al Tonno”. It’s this DELICIOUSLY simple recipe with onions, packaged tuna, white wine, spaghetti, a little pasta water, and parsley, topped with pepper and parm.
It’s out of this world.
When I was traveling full-time and living on the road, I frequently shopped at Whole Foods because a) they consistently had the ingredients I was accustomed to using, and b) they consistently had a higher quality of ingredient. When you are as serious about cooking as I am, the ingredients make all the difference. One time, when I was shopping to make “Spaghetti al Tonno”, I found a little jar that said “Tonnino” on it and it said it was imported from Italy. Inside this little jar were filets of tuna soaking in Italian olive oil. I had to try it.
I decided to saute the onions in the Italian olive oil the tuna had been soaking in. Never before had this part of the process been so fragrant! Before adding the tuna to the dish, I tasted one of the sauteed onions and OMG was it delicious. I added the tuna and continued to prepare the dish. I love this dish and had made it countless times before discovering “Tonnino”, but the finished product this time blew me away.
