• Spaghetti with Fresh Tomato Sauce Omit the tuna. The marinated tomatoes make a delicious sauce on their own.
• Spaghetti with Salmon and Fresh Tomato Sauce Omit the tuna. Coat 1 pound of skinless salmon fillets with 1 tablespoon cooking oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper. Broil the salmon until just barely done, 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet. Flake the salmon and toss with the pasta.
• Spaghetti with Shrimp and Fresh Tomato Sauce Omit the tuna. Add 1 pound of raw medium shelled shrimp to the spaghetti during the last 1 minute of cooking time.
Look for an acidic and intensely flavored white wine, such as a grassy Sauvignon Blanc from California, to match the aggressive taste of the tuna.
