I find that this recipe always comes to the rescue when I need to whip up something quick and easy for lunch. Generally I will have most of these ingredients in the fridge/pantry and I guess most of the ingredients are pretty common so hopefully most people have them in stock as well.

Finished Quick & Easy Tuna Pasta Recipe


Pasta (I normally use bows) but go crazy and use whatever type of pasta that you have

2 fresh tomatoes diced or half a can of tinned tomatoes

Half a chopped onion

Sprig of parsley

2. Heat up the oil in a fry pan and add the onion until it is slightly brown and translucent.

3. Now add in your tomatoes and leave to cook until they are soft.

4. Add in both cans of tuna to the tomatoes and season the mixture with as much salt and pepper as you desire, also add in the chillie flakes or some fresh chille for some heat.

5. To finish off, add some chopped parsley.

6. Drain your cooked pasta and stir through some more olive oil to ensure it doesn’t stick and dry out

Serve on top of your cooked pasta and Enjoy xxx
