Oh, that deep purple love!  Plate up something more exotic with this delicious aubergine dish. Perfect on the patio, or served as beautiful finger food party starters when you sub in 3 Japanese or Chinese eggplants.

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.

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

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!

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.

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

  • 2 medium eggplant, cut into ¾-inch thick slices
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 2 (5 ounce) cans Genova Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil, drained

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Lightly brush both sides of eggplant with olive oil and place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown, about 18 minutes.
  3. Place a couple slices of zucchini, tuna and red bell pepper on top of eggplant slices; top with cheese. Return to oven for 5-6 minutes, or cheese is bubbly. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
