From the kitchen of Dreamfields Pasta and Chef Jim Coleman

Made with

Penne Rigate


  • 1 box Dreamfields Penne Rigate
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes in juice
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon capers drained (optional)
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 5 oz cans water-packed tuna drained


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and return to pan.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook 1 to 2 minutes until onion becomes translucent, stirring constantly (watch carefully so garlic does not burn). Stir in tomatoes with juice, parsley, lemon juice and capers. Cook 1 minute; add red pepper flakes to taste.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 3 to 5 minutes to thicken sauce, stirring frequently. Gently stir in tuna; heat through.
  4. Add pasta to sauce. Stir gently to coat.

Serving Note: If you prefer, divide the pasta among 6 plates, then top with sauce.
