I like pesto so much that ever since I learned to make my own, I try to do it every time I can. In fact I make sure that I always have a bottle or two of pesto sauce in the fridge. This PERFECT pasta combination is one of the reasons why. It is quick, easy, tasty and healthy. I got this combination from a good friend of mine, Christine, who I gave a bottle to.
The ingredients are very simple:
- Onions [sliced]
- Canned Tuna in brine
- Mushrooms [the ones you use for cooking – not smoking]
- Pesto Sauce
- Cook your pasta the way you want it.
- Use the oil from the pesto sauce to saute the onions. When the onions are translucent, add the tuna and onions. Cook for a few mins then turn off the heat.
- Drain your pasta. Mix the pesto sauce. Then mix the sauteed tuna.
- Serve immediately.
This is how her pasta dish turned out:
Some people like their pasta with a lot of sauce.
This is how mine turned out. Yes, I like it a bit dry. I also didn’t have mushrooms in the house – but it turned out well. In fact I loved the combination. It retained the subtlety of the pesto sauce, complimented by the tuna.
How did I do the pesto sauce? Will put that in a different post next time. 🙂
