  • When the spaghetti is done, spoon off a few tablespoons of the cooking water and reserve them, then drain the spaghetti.
  • Transfer the spaghetti to a large bowl and toss it with the tuna, using the reserved water to moisten the mixture if necessary.

  • To make spaghetti alla corsara, add the tomato, garlic, and parsley to the spaghetti with the tuna, toss the ingredients well, and serve hot or at room temperature.
