What You'll Need

  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Skillet
  • Fork
  • Rice cooker or stove pot

Directions

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions.
  2. In the meanwhile, combine the sauce, tuna, olives, dried basil or oregano in a small pot, rice cooker, or microwave.
  3. Cook to blend the flavors. Break up tuna, if necessary. This takes about 5 minutes in the pot or 1 cycle of the rice cooker. If using the microwave, cover and heat for 2 minutes; stir, cover, and heat for another minute.
  4. Season with pepper and lemon zest. Toss sauce with pasta and additional seasonings.

Chef Tips

  • If you don’t have a zester, use a vegetable peeler to remove strips of lemon peel (just the yellow part!) then finely chop.
