Drain oil from tuna into large skillet. Add garlic and heat on low for 2 minutes. Add tuna, spinach, capers and salt to skillet heating gently. In the meantime, cook Al Dente pasta for 3 minutes in a large pot of boiling, salted water. Before draining the pasta, ladle ⅓ cup of cooking water to skillet tossing to wilt the spinach.
