Pasta with Spicy Tuna Sauce

La Bomba compliments the naturally rich flavour of our best quality tuna to produce a high protein, pasta dish with a spicy twist. Add as much La Bomba as you want to turn up the heat.



  1. In a saucepan lightly saute onion in olive oil until translucent (about 5 minutes)
  2. Add La Bomba, Diced Tomatoes and Tomato Purée. Let simmer on med/low heat for 10-15 minutes
  3. Boil water, add sea salt and cook pasta as directed on the package less 1 minute (for Penne a Zito Rigate that will be 9 minutes) Drain tuna and add to sauce just before adding the cooked pasta, making sure not to overdrain the pasta
  4. Gently toss pasta into sauce over med/low for 1-2 minutes, turn off heat, add fresh parsley and serve


About the Author:

I am a little of a great many things. Every experience and every blessing. And even though the whole may be greater than the sum of it's parts, welcome to this little part of me I call "Ita-liana." Raised in an Italian grocery store/food importing company (which explains why wine and olive oil runs through my veins) this is the part of me that is the very best of my Sicilian and Calabrian roots. Watching my Calabrese mother and grandmother cook for the entire family, with not only expertise and ease, but with an over abundance of love, left it's mark. Travelling back to Italy and learning about family history did the rest, while my Sicilian side kicks in almost intuitively. * © All recipes, photography, illustrations on posts by "ita-liana" and "Recipideo" video content copyright Liana Tumino ©
