Linguine Yellow Tomato Tuna and Basil by Chef Peppe Di Napoli

Peppe's recipe ...
There are many recipes of Pasta with fish, but surely this one that our friend Chef Peppe of Naples presents us today is one of the tastiest and easiest to make.

... his advice:
The first advice, of course, is to go and buy fish (absolutely fresh) in your fish market ... but for those who cannot, the important thing, as always, is to have excellent raw materials. Choose, therefore, the beautiful fresh Tuna, an excellent pasta (possibly slow-drying Gragnano) and the beautiful black olives from Gaeta and Yellow Tomatoes ... and then, as Peppe says, passion and love A 'Cascat (a waterfall)!!
Important: the tuna must not cook, it must be just and simply seared, otherwise it becomes hard.

Ingredients for 4 people
320 gr of linguine
1 slice of fresh tuna
300 gr of yellow cherry tomatoes
80 gr of black Gaeta olives
2 cloves of garlic
extra virgin olive oil
basil leaves
Salt and Pepper To Taste
Preparation:
Wash the yellow cherry tomatoes and basil carefully. Pitted the olives and cut the tuna into cubes. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
In a large pan pour the oil and add the 2 cloves of garlic. When I am browned on all sides, take it off. Now with the pan off, add the tuna and brown it for about 1 minute, maximum 1 minute and a half and then remove it and put it in a bowl.
Turn the pan back on and add the cherry tomatoes and olives.
Put a pan on the fire with plenty of water, when it boils add the salt and throw the pasta.
When it is al dente, drain the pasta and place it in the pan together with the cherry tomatoes and olives. Add a few basil leaves and a ladle of cooking water. Continue cooking until the pasta is perfectly creamed, that is until the water has absorbed and everything has become A CREAM!
Off the heat, now, add the tuna and stir again for a moment. Now, finally, the time has come to serve. Do it in our beautiful plate of CeramicaVietrese.it with bright colors and a marine decoration, adding a nice grind of fresh black pepper (if you like) and a few leaves of basil

... now serve and Buon appetito with Linguine Tuna, Yellow Tomato and Basil by Chef Peppe Di Napoli and bon appetit.
