Tuna Sauce with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Kalamata Olives
This is a terrific uncooked pasta sauce, easy to make and brimming with flavor.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup canned tuna packed in olive oil
1/4 cup minced sun-dried tomatoes
8 kalamata olives, pitted and minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice plus additional for squeezing on pasta
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons very finely minced fresh parsley

Directions:
1. Drain off the olive oil from the canned tuna, and place the tuna in a small bowl. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, olives, lemon juice, and extra-virgin olive oil. Mash together with a fork until fairly smooth. When ready to serve, blend with 3/4 cup of hot cooking water from the pasta pot.
2. In a large bowl, toss the tuna sauce with hot pasta. (If the pasta with sauce seems a little dry, add a little additional cooking water.) Divide pasta among 4 to 5 individual bowls. Squeeze a little additional lemon juice on the pasta in each bowl, and top with the finely minced parsley.

This is a terrific uncooked pasta sauce, easy to make and brimming with flavor. We like it with linguine or spaghetti. Makes enough sauce for 1 pound dried pasta
