Place about 4 to 6 quarts of water into a large pot of well salted water. Boil and add dried pasta. Cook until al dente.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, add tuna, capers, Ugly Yellow Sauce and season to taste. If you’re feeling spicy, and were able to snag a jar of preserved Calabrian chilies, add some of the oil to the mix.

Once pasta is cooked, drain and add to sauce bowl and mix well. Serve warm and garnish with 3 chilies.
