Cook's Tips:

Sun-dried tomatoes are vine-ripened tomatoes that have been picked and dried. These tomatoes deliver an intense flavor year round. Sun-dried tomatoes can be purchased dried or oil-packed.

This recipe is great with traditional Italian tuna, or tonno, which has a rich, mellow flavor. Look for olive oil-packed tuna in the gourmet or Italian section of larger supermarkets.
