DIRECTIONS:

 

    • Coarsely chop the onion and mix with the other ingredients until you obtain a texture similar to that of tuna.
    • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the wine and tomato sauce, bring to a boil, lower the heat and add the “tuna” (keep a little for garnish). Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally so that the sauce does not burn.
    • Mix the sauce with the pasta. Serve with a few capers and sprinkle with parsley, pepper and salt. Garnish with a drizzle of oil.
    • Serve and enjoy your dish!
