INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 450˚F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  2. Toss tomatoes with 3 tablespoons of olive oil on a baking sheet. Lightly sprinkle with salt. Roast at 450˚F for about 10 minutes, or until tomatoes are lightly browned.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil with garlic and hot for about 3 minutes on medium-high heat. Once it begins to turn golden, remove garlic and discard. Turn off heat, then add tuna and olives to the pan.
  4. Drain pasta, once it has reached al dente texture, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water for finishing sauce.
  5. Add hot pasta to the saucepan. Toss with roasted tomatoes, lemon zest and parsley. Cook together for about 2 minutes on medium-high heat to marry flavors. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add pasta water to loosen sauce, if necessary.
