Tomato Sauce with Tuna and Capers

Ingredients

5 tablespoons salted butter
1 medium sized onion, peeled and halved
1 can flaked tuna, drained
2 tablespoons capers, drained
1 zucchini, shredded
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 Zest of a lemon
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Splash of balsamic

Preparation

1
Place tomatoes, butter and onion in a heavy bottom pot over medium high heat.
2
Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low and cook for 35 minutes.
3
Place shredded zucchini in a small bowl and toss with salt (the salt will extract moisture). Set aside for ten minutes.
4
Transfer the zucchini to cheesecloth and squeeze out excess moisture. Set Aside.
5
When the 35 minutes is up check the sauce. Remove onion.
6
Add sugar and balsamic and stir to combine.
7
Stir in tuna, zucchini, capers and lemon zest and cook for an additional ten minutes.
8
Remove from heat and stir in parsley.
9
Serve over cooked pasta of your choice (I used bucatini) and top with onion.
10
Serve with fresh parsley, ground pepper and a drizzle of balsamic.
