Here we toss grilled tuna with pasta, artichoke hearts, green olives and tomatoes. Grilling the tuna gives this ultra-fresh pasta dish a subtle smokiness. But if you’re pressed for time, try canned tuna in place of the grilled fish.
8 ounces  tuna steak, cut into 3 pieces
4 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons  freshly grated lemon zest
2 teaspoons  chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried, divided
1/2 teaspoon  salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
6 ounces  whole-wheat gobbetti, rotini or penne pasta
1 10-ounce package  frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup  chopped green olives
3 cloves  garlic, minced
2 cups  grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup  white wine
2 tablespoons  lemon juice
1/4 cup  chopped fresh basil or parsley for garnish
Tuna Pasta with Olives & Artichokes Recipe at
Preheat grill to medium-high. Put a large pot of water on to boil.

Toss tuna pieces in a bowl with 1 tablespoon oil, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary (or 1/2 teaspoon dried), 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Grill the tuna until just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. When cool enough to handle, flake the tuna into bite-size pieces.

Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.

Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add artichoke hearts, olives, garlic and the remaining rosemary. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is just beginning to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and wine; bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are broken down and the wine has reduced slightly, about 3 minutes more. Stir in the pasta, tuna pieces, lemon juice and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Garnish with basil (or parsley), if desired.
