This is a quick and tasty recipe for pasta with tuna and peas. It will take you back to the days of tuna noodle casserole but with a quick and easy cooking time.
I have made this with linguine and bucatini, both worked well. Bucatini is a pasta that is round and thick like spaghetti but has a small hole in the middle. You can also use pre-cooked chicken in place of tuna. Great use for leftovers.
What You’ll Need:
- 3 ounces of pasta
- 1/2 cup green peas
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 small can water packed tuna
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- Sea salt and pepper to taste
Note: all ingredients are organic
Let’s Make It
In a large pot good pasta according to package instructions. A few minutes before pasta is complete, drop in the peas for the last minute of boiling. Drain and rinse with cold water.
In a 10-inch skillet whisk together the flour and milk. Cook over moderate heat stirring constantly. Cook until slightly thickening about 2 minutes. Add in pasta, peas, tuna, salt and pepper. Toss to coat well. The sauce will continue to thicken, if needed add a touch more milk as it sits. Before serving stir in parmesan cheese.
