Farfalle With Tuna in a Basil Lemon Dressing

20 mins (prep 20)
12 ingredients
2-3 servings
This is the quickest summer dinner we all love. The possibilities are endless as far as playing with it. I've added, at various times, roasted red peppers, capers, peas and toasted pignoli for some crunch. I first had this at a little deli in Los Gatos that has long since closed, but found something similar on Epicurious and adapted it a bit. This is a life saver when you're tired!
