- Whole wheat pasta
- Red wine vinaigrette
Start with whole wheat pasta, a whole grain base provides a simple background for stronger flavors. Keep it going with tuna, like the pasta, it's both substantial and mild. Accent it with parsley, a bright-tasting herb like this one perks up a dish. Olives add rich saltiness. Bring it all together with red wine vinaigrette, a bright and tangy dressing increases the overall amount of flavor.
If you like earthy, satisfying whole wheat pasta, you could swap in: barley, brown rice, quinoa or wild rice.
