Festive Holiday Supper -- Recipe

We really don't have a name for this dish, its a Christmas
evening one, Southern Italian.
Boil water, put in a thin spaghetti, till cooked.

In separate fry pan put:

1/4 cup olive oil,

fresh parsley, (dry works too) fresh is better,

2 fresh gloves of garlic minced fine,

salt, pepper, and

two cans Italian tuna fish, (regular works too) but Italian in oil is better,

Cook together while spaghetti cooking, just a few minutes,
once spaghetti cooked drain.**

**Here comes trick, DON'T remove all the water leave enough to just cover spaghetti, if you take out too much water it becomes like rock. Take out to
little, its too watery. I have over years got in down pat. Then add:

1 cup Italian dry bread crumbs,

Along with the tuna and oil and:

1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, (fresh grated better) bag works too.

Mix well, wait 5 minutes and serve with parsley and cheese on the side.
A heavy red goes very good with this a
2007 Russo De Tavolo.
