Tasty Tuna Pasta

Pasta is one of my favourite ingredients. You can easily make a quick and healthy meal for family and friends in no time. This tuna pasta is really yummy! One evening I was routing through the cupboards wandering what to make and I stumbled upon a few tinned ingredients and thought I’ll mix them with pasta. I use pennoni dried pasta but feel free to use whichever you prefer, I only used this as it was all we had in the cupboard.

Method

In a large pan, cook the pasta according to the packet instructions in boiling, lightly salted water.

While the pasta cooks, finely chop the red onion and fry in a pan with a little olive oil and black pepper. When the onion is softened add the tomorrow’s and being to a gentle simmer.

Add the butter beans and heat through. Then add the tuna chunks and season with black pepper and the oregano.

Simmer gently for a few minutes and drain the cooked pasta, reserving a little of the pasta water to add to the sauce, about half a cup. Return the pasta to the pan and add the cooked sauce and mix well. Add the pasta water to loosen the mixture. Serve and enjoy.
