Lidia Bastianich's Farro with Tuna and Tomatoes

Adapted from Lidia's Italy

Why I Picked This Recipe: Everything else I've tried from Lidia's Italy has worked well, and I wanted to see what she would do with farro, especially since the recipe comes together so quickly.

What Worked: Because it is cooked separately, I worried that the farro wouldn't meld well with the sauce, but that's not the case. This really comes together as a cohesive dish, and the tuna added enough protein to make for a filling meal.

What Didn't: No complaints on this recipe.
