According to your preferences, add some or all the previously prepared seafood seasoning to the tuna and mix well.
Bring the water to boil in a pot big enough to cook the Farfalle pasta. When boiling, add the salt, the pasta and cook until al dente.
In the meantime, chop the onion. In a large skillet saute the onion with the tuna olive oil, previously drained from the can. Cook until lightly caramelized.
Add the drained green beans and saute for additional 1-2 minutes stirring frequently.
At this step, add the seasoned tuna. Stir fry for 1-2 minutes, mixing continuously. Remove from heat. Add some extra virgin olive oil if too dry.
When the Farfalle pasta is ready, drain and dress with the seasoned tuna and green beans sauce. Serve hot.
