Description

Vin santo is what makes this sauce "drunken," but you could use other sweet dessert wines or a fruity red wine, as desired. Part of the wine is added at the beginning and cooked until evaporated, to deglaze the pan and concentrate the flavors of the sauteed onion and tuna; the rest is added at the end, for extra flavor. Short tubular shapes like penne, ziti, and rigatoni are the best ones to cradle the sauce, and all can be used in this recipe.

Ingredients

400 grams penne pasta
1 onions (Tropea variety, may substitute with a red onion)
3 cans tuna in oil (drained and chopped finely)
400 grams tomato purée
100 milliliters vin santo (may substitute a sweet dessert wine)
1/2 cup water
extra-virgin olive oil (Good quality)
oregano
salt
sugar

Directions

1Slice the onion finely.
2Place some extra virgin olive oil in a terracotta saucepan with the onion and the tuna.
3Saute for a few minutes.
4Add 80 milliliters of the Vin Santo and allow it to evaporate completely.
5Cook for 15 to 20 minutes on low heat.
6Add the tomato puree, water, a teaspoon of sugar, and a pinch of oregano.
7Season with salt, cover and cook on medium-low heat for approximately 30 minutes.
8After 15 minutes, add the remaining wine and complete the cooking process. The sauce should be thick.
9In the meantime, cook the pasta and drain when ‘al dente’.
10Add the pasta to the sauce.
11Stir well and serve.
