Pasta puttanesca is a spicy dish made up of tomatoes, anchovies, capers, red pepper flakes, garlic, olives and any pasta. Tuna covers the anchovy flavor well and brined green olives come close to capers without being so different that the kids turn their noses up at them. Throw it together with your favorite jarred pasta sauce and it's quick to cook as well.
