This tuna fish tomato sauce recipe provides a great second course of tuna fish, and, additionally, a wonderfully tasty sauce to use as the dressing for a first course of pasta.

Choosing a large chunk of tuna, approximately 3–4 inches (8–10 cm) thick, will make it easier to slice the fish at the end of the preparation. In alternative use diced tuna fish for a more practical recipe.

* In a saucepan, pour oil, and turn heat to medium. When the oil is hot, add onion and pinch of red pepper.
* Sauté until the onion becomes translucent. Add the tuna.
* Stir thoroughly to brown the tuna uniformly on all sides.
* Add the wine and let it evaporate.
* Add the tomato purée.
* Add bay leaves, clove, cinnamon. Stir, cover the pan, and cook on medium low until the tuna fish is tender.
* Cook the spaghetti or bucatini following the instructions. Drain the pasta, transfer it to a serving bowl and dress it with the tuna fish sauce. Serve at once.
