Angel Hair Pasta with Tuna Recipe

Angel Hair Pasta with Tuna Recipe

When my summer garden is in full bloom, I'll make homemade puree with fresh tomatoes. Instead of tuna steaks, you can use three 12-ounce cans of chunk white tuna.—Weda Mosellie, Phillipsburg, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 45 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 cup dry red wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pounds tuna steaks
  • 2 packages (16 ounces each) angel hair pasta
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
