Fresh Albacore Tuna Pasta

Albacore is not the first tuna people think about when using when in recipes, Ahi (Blue fin)is the popular one that people are most familiar with, often from sushi bars. Albacore is found mostly in cans, packed in water or oil. It can be found fresh and is just as good and a little cheaper too. I made a spicy pasta using this tasty tuna with capers, tomatoes, chili flakes and extra virgin olive oil. Great for lunch or a light dinner.
4 oz Fresh Albacore, diced
1 Roma Tomato, diced
1 Tablespoon, capers, drained and rinsed
1 clove chopped garlic
2 Tablespoons, extra virgin olive oil
1 handful, dried spaghetti
1. Cooked the pasta in boiling salted water till done, drain.
2. Saute the tuna, tomato, garlic, chili flakes in olive oil.
3. Add capers and pasta, toss well and serve in warmed bowls.
