The instruction how to make Tuna pasta salad

  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a rapid boil. Add the olive oil and pasta. Stir to prevent the pasta from sticking to the base of the saucepan and cook following packet directions until al dente. Drain, and rinse under cold running water until cooled to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, peel the rind from the lemon using a vegetable peeler. Remove the white pith from the rind and then cut the rind into thin strips. (Alternatively use a zester.)
  3. Combine the pasta, lettuce, tuna, onion, olives, parsley and 1 tablespoon of lemon find strips in a serving dish. Pour the Italian Dressing over the salad and toss. Garnish with the Parmesan cheese and anchovies (if using). Serve immediately.
