Ingredients:
400g Pastificio Ventuino Orecchiette (or other short pasta)
1 ½ tablespoons small salted capers, rinsed, drained
1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
1 cup basil leaves
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
1 Sapore di Mare Anchovy Fillets in oil, drained
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Zest and juice of 1 lemon, plus strips of zest to serve
2 Sapore di Mare White Tuna Fillets jars, drained, oil reserved

Instructions
1. Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water according to packet instructions. Once cooked, drain the pasta.
2. Meanwhile, pat capers dry with paper towel. Place herbs, garlic, anchovies, Dijon, lemon zest and juice, and 2 teaspoons capers in a processor and whiz until roughly chopped. With the motor running, drizzle in tuna oil until a coarse paste is formed.
