    Set oven control to broil. Brush both sides of tuna steaks with 1 teaspoon oil. Place on rack in broiler pan. Broil with tops 4 inches from heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning once and sprinkling with 1/4 teaspoon salt, until tuna flakes easily with fork.

    Meanwhile, in food processor bowl with metal blade, place remaining ingredients except broth and cheese. Cover and process about 10 seconds or until finely chopped. With processor running, slowly pour in broth and continue processing until almost smooth. Stir in cheese. Serve with tuna.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Although flat-leaf parsley has more flavor than curly parsley, you can substitute the curly variety if that's what's available.
  • tip 2
    Be careful not to overcook the tuna. You should cook it just until the tuna flakes. Tuna sometimes retains a slightly pink color, even when thoroughly cooked.
