1) Cook your pasta in 4 litres of water with the curcuma.
2) Meanwhile place all the ingredients for the tuna rillettes onto a chopping board and start chopping the lot. Make sure to mix well all the ingredients while you are chopping. Check the seasoning and reserve into the fridge.
3) Drain your pastas and cool them down with cold water. Strain them and stir in a little bit of olive oil. Clear into the fridge.
4) Cut the top of your cherry tomatoes and take the inside out of them. Season them and place them upside down onto a tray for 15 minutes.
5) To make the dressing mix the olive oil with the hibiscus vinegar. Add the pulp of your cherry tomatoes and season well with salt and pepper. Take a salad bowl and season your pastas with the dressing and place into the fridge.
6) Carefully, stuff your tomatoes with the tuna rillettes. Then, place the tomato tops on the top of them. Finally, stuff the egg whites shells.

Place the pasta salad at the centre of a nice tray. Then, place the stuffed sherry tomatoes all around with the stuffed eggs whites in between.
