Print Recipe


  • 10 ounces dried pasta (I used gluten-free pasta)
  • 4 tsp capers (drained)
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (I used flavoured olive oil)
  • 8 ounces canned tuna (packed in oil)
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup black olives (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese (crumbled)
  • salt & pepper (to taste)


  • Put on a large pot of water to boil. Once boiling, add the pasta and cook until your desired level of doneness.
  • Wash the tomatoes, cut in half. Set aside.
  • Open the tuna, drain, flake and set aside.
  • Heat a large (non-stick) skillet to medium-high. Add the olive oil.
  • Fry the capers until crisp, and remove from pan. Set aside.
  • To the pan add the tomatoes, tuna, and seasonings. 
  • Drain the pasta, reserving a cupful of water.
  • Add the water to the pan. Cook until ingredients are heated through.
  • Add the pasta and capers. TOSS!
  • Place in serving bowls and garnish with olives and feta cheese.
  • ENJOY!



If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, lunch the next day is made. This tastes great cold too.
