Farfalle con Tonno di Coniglio

Marye from Baking Delights is hosting Presto Pasta Night and in this time of the year when things can get a bit hectic, Pasta is one of those food items that I turn to to relieve the stress.

This dish I'm making is one for the time challenged and would be equally as good, served hot or cold as a salad item.

Any short pasta will do but I've gone for a favourite, Farfalle

which means Butterfly though for some reason, Bow Ties has become the more usual translation.

The other ingredient is my Tonno di Coniglio.

The dish is so simple, it doesn't need a recipe. While the water is boiling and you cook the pasta, remove the Tonno from the fridge to get it back up to room temperature.

As soon as the pasta is done, quickly drain it and toss it immediately through the Tonno - the heat from the pasta will be enough to will warm up the rest of the ingredients.

  1. What a glorious dish! And so pretty, who could resist? Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Night.

  2. I've never had tuna in a hot pasta dish, though I have a feeling I should try it---yours sounds so good.

    Thanks for reminding me to check out Presto Pasta Night!

  3. Thanks Sophie!

    Thanks Ruth - always a pleasure!

    Thanks Mellisa - this isn't tuna, it is rabbit made in the style of tuna.

  4. Rabbit, huh? Interesting.


  5. You'd be very surprised by the taste Paz.
