I am all for quick and easy dishes, as long as they are delicious! I have been craving Tuna for some time now and decided it is about time to stop that craving.
Usually a good Tuna Sandwich will do it for me, but I wanted a more filling dish and this Quick Tuna Pasta is always a hit anyway …. dinner sorted.
A Bit of chopping and slicing, cooking the Pasta (cook the Sauce whilst the Pasta is on the stove) and dinner is ready in under 20 minutes.
Now this is really a quick and easy dinner recipe, packed with vegetables and if your family is anything like mine, this will become a favorite dish too. (Even non-Tuna eaters loves this !)
Filling, creamy on the table in no time at all – serve a light crunchy salad on the side and you are set for dinner.
