NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY
Beginning with National Wear Red Day—Friday, February 5, 2010—millions will help spread the critical message that “Heart Disease Doesn’t Care What You Wear.” The Red Dress, the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness, was created by The Heart Truth® in 2002 to deliver an urgent wakeup call to American women. Everyone can participate in the national movement by wearing their favorite red dress, shirt, tie, or Red Dress Pin.
On Thursday, February 11, 2010, The Heart Truth will bring the Red Dress to life once again on the runway at New York Fashion Week with the debut of the Red Dress Collection 2010. This spectacular event reminds women of the need to protect their heart health and inspires them to take action. Read more about The Heart Truth here.
Sauté a chopped onion in olive oil until soft, then add finely chopped garlic and red pepper flakes. Then add about 1 t. fennel seed and 3 anchovies. Stir to dissolve anchovies.
Add a can of diced tomatoes (I like San Marzano), rinsed capers, and a can of the finest albacore tuna. I recently discovered this Gourmet Coastal Albacore Tuna at Bristol Farms. It uses sashimi grade troll caught albacore that is bled and blast frozen at sea immediately upon catch. The loins are filleted and packed directly into the can and cooked once in its own juices. Containing 2200mg of Omega-3 per 56g serving, almost three times the Omega-3 oil found in national brand tunas. Dolphin and turtle safe too.
Yuzu Chervil Gremolata: Combine minced garlic, yuzu zest and fresh chervil, and a small amount of sea salt. The flavor is fresh (chervil), bright (yuzu), and intense (raw garlic). A great condiment and excellent complement to the tuna sauce!
Toss al dente whole wheat thin spaghetti with a drizzle of olive oil. Top with the tuna sauce, gremolata, and garnish with olives.
To your heart!
