Tuna & Pasta Parmigiana

Grandma learned a few of her kitchen tricks from a chef friend. When it came to mincing garlic, Grandma was thrilled to discover how to keep the garlic from sticking to the knife blade. Her friend told her to simply drizzle a drop or two of olive oil over the cloves before mincing. It worked like a charm! No more scraping sticky garlic off the knife. “In the summer, Grandma often made this dish with leftover grilled cubed chicken instead of tuna.”
