Boil a generous amount of water in a pot, add salt (not listed in ingredients) and boil pasta 1 minute longer than instructed on the package.
While the pasta is boiling, chop the tomato into bite-sized pieces and chop the avocado into small cubes. Mince the onion.
Combine the ingredients from Step 2 with the tuna and ◆ ingredients.
Drain the pasta and chill with chilled (ice) water and thoroughly drain. Toss with the ingredients from Step 3 and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Addendum I use a mild ponzu sauce. Gradually adjust the saltiness and acidity to taste.
Story Behind this Recipe
I love pasta with avocado and basil sauce, but over the years, since the flavor has gotten a bit overpowering, I've been adding lemon juice; But adding ponzu brought the flavors together and it was tasty The tartness of the tomatoes is also a perfect match. I use my own recipe for the basil sauce.
Adjust the amount of basil sauce to taste. Since the flavor of store-bought basil sauce varies, you may need to add more flavor with grated cheese and a pinch of consommé stock granules. It's also tasty if you chop up a small pat of cream cheese and mix it into the pasta.
