I haven't tried Peter's recipe, but I make a great tuna pasta which is pretty similar. First, I would not use spaghetti, fettucine, or linguini. Try to stick with penne or rotini. Do not overcook the pasta! Second, while the pasta is cooking prepare 2 cans (6 oz each) of drained albacore tuna (flaked) in a large bowl. Use the tuna can to measure the olive oil. I usually fill it up half way. Add olive oil to tuna, then salt and pepper to taste. Mince 4 cloves of garlic in bowl and stir. When the pasta is done, drain and run under cold water. Then add pasta to tuna mixture. Add more salt and pepper. And 2 more cloves of garlic. You can eat this cold, or nuke it in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Not too bad for a simple recipe. Didn't have much in my cupboard, but this recipe came out nicely. I didn't have fresh garlic or parsley, but still came out fine with garlic salt and dried herbs. I found that I needed a little more oil, but maybe I had too much pasta. Either way, it was good.
