Pesto Preparation:

Put all ingredients in the bowl of a mixer, and mix in short pulses until you get a smooth paste. You can add oil and blend again to obtain a more liquid consistency. Adjust seasoning if necessary. You can keep several days refrigerated in an airtight jar.

Preparing the pasta salad:

Cook the pasta “al dente” in plenty of boiling salted water. Drain and rinse with cold water. Season when they are still warm with pesto. When completely cooled, add the flaked tuna, feta cheese cut into small cubes, capers, sprouts, chopped mint and chopped onions. Mix thoroughly and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Keep cool in a closed container.
