fortuna pasta salad

Imagine an early afternoon swim in the Mediterranean Sea and then sitting down to a pasta salad loaded with fresh shrimp and Italian tuna. You might enjoy a glass of Prosecco with this casual meal. The crew of Fortuna generously shared their recipe with me during a visit to the Balearic Islands in Spain. When I spy a can of imported Spanish or Italian tuna packed in oil in the grocery store, I am inspired to make this dish.
