|Fregola Pasta with St. Jude Tuna|
|48oz Fregula Sarda Pasta (traditional Sardinian)
8oz St Jude Mediterranean tuna
10 oz cherry tomatoes, halved
6 leaves fresh basil, julienned
1 tsp fresh oregano
2 Tbsp capers
1 large shallot, minced
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (the good stuff!)
Salt to taste
This is a great recipe and you’ll find a version on the package of pasta itself. I left out bottarga (salted, pressed tuna roe) because I think it’s too salty for the dish but, of course, we sell bottarga and you’re free to pile it on!
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Make sure you have plenty of water because this pasta takes nearly 20 minutes to cook.
Note, I love capers so I crank them up in this recipe. If you use salted capers, rinse well before adding
Mix all of the other ingredients in a bowl and let rest, at room temp, until the pasta is cooked al dente. Strain the pasta and mix it all up. That’s it!
Serving Suggestions: PLEASE drink a crisp Verdicchio with this , like the Marchetti. The recipe serves four.
