Ingredients

  • 2 tomatoes (1 lb/450 g total)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic smashed
  • 8 oz button mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 anchovies drained and rinsed
  • 12 oz linguine
  • 2 cans oil-packed tuna drained
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Method

Score X in bottom of each tomato. Blanch in boiling water until skins begin to split, 20 to 30 seconds; cool in cold water. Peel off skins; seed and dice tomatoes. Set aside.

In large skillet, heat half of the oil and the butter over medium heat; cook 1 of the garlic cloves until golden, about 1 minute. Discard garlic.

Add mushrooms, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 6 minutes. Transfer to plate.

In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook remaining garlic until golden, 1 minute. Discard garlic. Add anchovies; cook, stirring, until broken down, about 20 seconds.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid; return pasta to pot.

Stir tomatoes and 1/3 cup of the reserved cooking liquid into anchovies; simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

Stir tuna into tomato mixture; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in parsley and mushrooms; cook for 1 minute. Add to pasta and toss, adding enough of the remaining cooking liquid to coat; cook for 1 minute.
