Ready in 1h

Pasta with a light "sauce", tuna, Parmesan, and peas. Super easy to make and delicious.


1 package pasta; wheat or regular, cooked according to pack
1 envelope tuna; packed in water
1 can 16 oz or similar; peas (small ones are best)
1/2 - 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated; the dry stuff is easiest but any will do
1/4 - 1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt and pepper each
1 teaspoon garlic powder or fresh garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 cup milk as needed

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



First, cook the pasta according the package directions. While it is boiling, open your tuna and peas and measure out or ready your Parmasean cheese.

As soon as the pasta is done, rinse it quickly in very hot water and put it back into the pot you cooked it in.

Turn off the burner and put the pasta back on the burner.

Melt the butter on the pasta, stirring gently.

Add the tuna and mix it evenly.

Pour in the olive oil and parmasan cheese and mix thoroughly.

Season with the salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder and add more if it tastes bland.

Add the milk and turn the burner back on low for a few minutes if the dish has cooled or you are using a gas range. Gently stir in the peas.



The hot pasta cooks the other ingredients, but if you need to, you can heat it more on low when all the ingredients have been mixed. If it appears dry, add an additional splash of milk. It serves 4-6 people depending on appetite.
