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.
- 300g Pennoni Dried Pasta
- 2 tins Tuna in Olive Oil, drained approx. 300g
- 1 tin Butter Beans in water, drained and washed with water approx. 200g
- 1 tin Chopped Tomatoes
- Half of a Red Onion
- 2tsp Dried Oregano
- Black Pepper to season
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.
