Ingredients:  
I can Italian tuna in olive oil (very important - vegetable oil won't work)
1 small onion, chopped fine
1-2 cups tomato sauce (homemade or store bought, I like Newman's Own)
1/2 lb pasta
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Directions:
Put the pasta water on to boil. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat and open the can of tuna. Use some of the oil from the tuna and some fresh olive oil to saute the onions until tender and browning. Add the tuna (you can add the rest of the oil or drain it) and saute until the tuna is heated and separated, and ideally browning a bit (usually 3-5 minutes). Add the tomato sauce until it reaches a consistency you like and heat through. Serve on pasta with fresh Parmesan cheese on the side.

Personal Notes:
This is a very free flowing recipe. You can use as much or as little of the ingredients as you like, and can saute the onions and tuna as much or as little as you like. I like it sautéed longer, but tend to match it to the pasta timing.
