SERVINGS:4

INGREDIENTS:

  • 12 oz of short pasta (such as rigatoni, penne or fusilli)
  • 7 oz of canned tuna in oil, drained
  • 1 cup of peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) of tomato sauce
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

 

METHOD:

Prepare the ingredients:
Finely chop onion and, if using fresh peas, blanch them in boiling water for a few minutes, then drain and set aside.

Cook the pasta:
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to package instructions.
Drain when al dente, reserving some of the cooking water.

Prepare the sauce:
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until transparent.

Add the tuna:
Add the drained tuna to the skillet and break it up with a spatula. Cook it along with the onion for a few minutes.

Add the peas and tomato sauce:
If using fresh peas, add them to the skillet with the tuna.
Pour in the tomato sauce.
Stir well and cook over medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes, until the peas are tender and the sauce has thickened slightly.

Combine the pasta and sauce:
Add the cooked pasta to the pan with the tuna, peas, and tomato sauce. Stir gently until the pasta is completely covered with the sauce.

Serve:
Transfer pasta with tuna, peas, and tomato sauce to serving plates. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired. Serve hot.
