Spaghetti with Tuna Sauce

Lighter and more summery than spaghetti with a tomato or meat sauce, this dish makes a good family meal.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients (for 4-6)
1 lb gluten-free spaghetti (small pasta shells work well, too)
1 clove garlic (optional)
1/2 small red pepper, diced (optional)
2 TBS olive oil
4 TBS butter
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
3 TBS dry white wine or vermouth
7- oz can of tuna
salt and black pepper

Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil, add spaghetti (or other pasta) and cook according to the package directions.

Peel and finely chop the garlic. Heat the oil and half the butter, and sauté garlic for 1-2 minutes, add chopped red pepper, then stir in stock and wine. Boil briskly over high heat until the liquid has reduced to about 1/2 - 3/4 cup. Drain the tuna, flake the fish, and add it to the stock. Season with salt and pepper.

When spaghetti (pasta) is cooked, drain it thoroughly and toss in the remaining butter. If using spaghetti, put spaghetti on a warm serving dish and pour over the hot tuna sauce. If using another type of pasta, you can just mix the past and the tuna sauce and place in a serving dish.
