Place a large skillet over medium heat, warm the 3 tablespoons olive oil, and sauté garlic until golden and caramelized. Drain on paper towels, reserving oil in skillet; set skillet aside.
- When large pot of water comes to a boil, lightly salt it and add rigatoni; cook to taste, 12 to 15 minutes. While pasta cooks, place the skillet over medium-high heat, and add tuna. When tuna is seared but still pink inside, transfer to a plate. Add the beans to the skillet. When beans are cooked, drain off the olive oil (leave beans in pan) and add the extra virgin olive oil, the juice of half a lemon and the lemon rind. Stir, and add tomatoes, garlic, tuna, anchovies, parsley and half the basil leaves. Season with salt and pepper and more lemon juice to taste, if desired. Keep warm.
- Drain pasta well, and transfer to a large warm bowl. Add tuna mixture, and toss gently to mix. Garnish with remaining basil leaves, and serve.

WARM PASTA-SALAD NICOISE
Salad Nicoise is a classic composed salad, originally from Nice, France--on the famed Cote de Azur. Here's a simple delicious variation on the classic salad that's made with pasta not potatoes, and gets all tossed together in a large serving bowl not composed. A great summer luncheon or dinner main course. Just serve it with a glass of white wine, a chunk of cheese, and a crusty loaf of bread. Bon appetit! Tips: Grilled tuna or swordfish would make a delicious substitute for the canned albacore. For a more traditional version I sometimes add some sliced red onion, sliced hard-boiled eggs, and a handful of cooked new potatoes (in place of the pasta) and haricots verts. You can reduce the amount of olives to about 1/4 cup---thereby reducing the fat---still tastes great, in fact I prefer it. Time listed does not include one hour sit time, but I don't really find it necessary. Enjoy!
