Remove any bones from the tuna and flake the flesh. Put it into a blender with the anchovies, olive oil and parsley and process until the sauce is smooth. Pour on the sauce on the pasta and toss quickly using 2 forks. Transfer to warm plates, sprinkle parmesan cheese and garnish with the olives and serve warm, with Italian crusty bread.
