Tunboller i Tomatsovs

This recipe is a modified version of the original Sicilian "Polpette di Tonno di Rosa Ponzio" and is really worth trying!
Enjoy it with your favorite red wine and finish the meal with tiramisu and espresso.

Ingredients (2 persons) 
- Tuna balls:
1 Can of tuna (150 g)
1 Garlic glove 
1/2 Handfull broad-leaved parsley 
1 tbs Grated parmesan
1 tsp Lemon zest
2 tsp Korender
2 tsp Pine kernels
2 tsp Bread crumb
1 Egg
Olive oil

- Tomato sauce:
1 Scallot
2 Small stalks of celery
1 Garlic glove
1 Handfull broad-leaved parsley
1 tbs Korender
1 Can of whole tomatoes (400 g)
1 tbs Marsala
1 tbs Lemon juice
2 tbs Heavy cream
Olive oil

Spagetti for 2 persons
Fresh basil

Finely chop garlic and parsley. Drain the tuna from excess water (or oil) and mix well with garlic, parsley, parmesan, lemon zest, korender, pine kernels, and bread crumb. Adjust with salt and pepper before adding the egg. Again, mix well and leave cold and covered with a lid for 1/2 - 1 hour. 
Heat up a pan with a little olive oil. Form small balls with the size of a large walnut and fry at low-medium heat until well browned on all sides.
In the meantime you can prepare the sauce. Finely chop scallot and garlic. Slice up the celery stalks. Heat up a medium sized pot and fry onions and celery for 2-4 minutes during stiring. Add tomatoes and marsala and simmer under the lid for 20-30 minutes. Adjust with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Pour the sauce over the fried tuna ball and simmer for another 10 minutes. Prepare the spagettis according to the manufacturer. Add the cream to the tomato sauce just before serving. 

Serve on spagetti topped with freshly grated parmesan and torn basil.
