Absolutely adore the yellowfin tuna with olive oil. I can eat it straight without adding any extras, it also is extremely healthy! I never knew I could LOVE tuna, especially without mayo!

Hands down the best canned tuna I've ever had. Always in nice meaty chunks, and the taste is out of this world.

Love it. Best tuna that we can get in the U.S. Closest thing to the freshness of the tuna we bring back from Italy.

I just tried Genova tuna in oil for the first time. I have to say it is some of the freshest tasting tuna I have tried. I am hooked! #GenovaSeafood

Wow!! First time buyer, and I’ll never go back to other company. Light, flaky and moist yet flavorful. Albacore Tuna with Olive Oil is delicious. Genova is my new brand in seafood.

  • 1 lb penne pasta
  • 2- 6 oz cans Genova Tuna in olive oil (Albacore or Yellowfin)
  • 2 medium zucchini sliced in quarters then chopped
  • 4 scallions chopped
  • ½ cup grated carrots
  • 4 small sweet peppers cut into rings

Lemon Dill Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ⅔ cup oil
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, paste ( or 1 clove minced garlic)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill ( can use dry if unable to find fresh, but fresh is fantastic!)


  1. To make the sauce, use and immersion blender in a tall narrow cup combine all ingredients and place in blender and turn on, then pull the immersion blender up and down to emulsify the mixture. It will become thick and well blended.
  2. Cook pasta according to directions.
  3. Rinse noodles with cold water and stir ingredients with pasta together, add sauce and drain some olive oil off of the tuna if desired, flake tuna with a fork and gently add it to the dish.
  4. If you want to serve this hot, in a skillet saute the vegetables, add the pasta and sauce and stir and then drain some olive oil off of the tuna if desired, flake tuna with a fork and gently add it to the dish.
