6-8 Servings


  • 10 plum tomatoes
  • 1 ½ cups olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • ½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3-5 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 2 cans Genova Albacore Tuna
  • 1 box Rigatoni pasta, cooked & drained


  1. Blanch the tomatoes by bringing a large pot of water to a boil. Then take one tomato and lightly cut an X on it, you can do this on the bottom of the tomato but I like to do it on the side.
  2. Repeat with the other 9 tomatoes. Once the water is boiling, add the tomatoes 5 at a time and let them cook for 1-2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining tomatoes. Remove from water and let them cool. Once cooled, peel and dice. Then place in a large mixing bowl.
