15-Minute Tuna Pasta
This tuna pasta is my to-go meal whenever the pantry is low on fresh foods. It is filling on its own and can also be used for lunch box or picnic food.
The main ingredients, canned tuna and pasta, are dried foods. The rest of the ingredients are everyday pantry items – onion, frozen peas, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. It is also quick to whip up (only 15 minutes) and can be prepared up to a day in advance and chilled.
If making the pasta in advance, I usually cook the macaroni and frozen vegetables first, then store them in covered food containers in the fridge. When ready to serve, just toss everything together, so that the pasta tastes fresh and moist. You can also add a finely chopped hard-boiled egg for a richer taste.
I am also caught in such a situation, sometimes, when my pantry is low on fresh food! I use sardines, and beans + onions and stuff that you mentioned as well :)
You reminded me about the sardine sandwich filling I used to make in secondary school. Need to make it soon :)
You must have known that I just bought a couple of tins of tuna :-)) This looks looks not only delicious, also quite healthy!
Nice tuna pasta…I love that you used frozen veggies in it…great meal…simple and so delicious.
Hope you are having a great week Wiffy :D
I love this kind of easy pasta too!
I prepared this Tuna Pasta last night to bring to work today for lunch. I made double portion so that I could share with my colleague. Thumb up for this recipe!!! It is light and the tuna smell is not too strong after mixing all the ingredients! We enjoyed it very much! Thanks! ;o).
great to hear that, thanks for trying!
Very tasty even when straight out of the fridge!
