Calamarate al tonno e olive. If you can’t find calamarata, you can use penne.
300 grams calamarata
200 grams tuna in oil — drained
1 heaped tablespoon capers (preferably salted) — soaked in cold water for 10 minutes then drained
20 olives (green or black or a mixture of both) — stoned and roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic — finely sliced
3 sprigs parsley — chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil
the zest of half a lemon — grated
1/2 glass dry white wine
