Pasta with Tomato and Tuna

30 Aug

I love canned tuna, doesn’t matter whether it’s in water or oil, I just love it. It’s so easy to add to your pasta or salad in minutes and it’s good for you. This recipe is something I played around with after reading it in a book. It’s pretty close to what they had but I added carrots and tomato sauce. It’s really yummy when it’s warm and you pour it over pasta, but it’s also great to eat cold over some greens and fresh tomatoes like a salad. Please try it!


2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves crushed and minced garlic

1 cup chopped onions

1 ½ cup chopped celery sticks

2/3 cup chopped carrots

1 ½ cup chopped fresh tomatoes

4 tablespoons of tomato sauce

1 cup hot water

¼ cup capers

1 5oz can of tuna in water

2 ½ cups of uncooked pasta

Salt and pepper

Heat up the olive oil in a large pan and sauté the garlic, onion, celery, and carrots for a few minutes. Add the water, bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes or until the water has reduced. Add the tomatoes and tomato sauce, salt and pepper to taste and bring to a boil again. Simmer for about 15 minutes, until thick.

Meanwhile cook the pasta according to instructions on the box.

Flake the tuna into chunks and add to the sauce with the capers before you turn off the heat. Pour it over the cooked pasta.
