Tuna tomato pasta is a delicious healthy and easy recipe that only takes 20 minutes to make. With just a few basic ingredients it’s budget friendly too!
Folks, this tuna tomato pasta is a great recipe if you’re still feeling the pinch after all the extravagance of Christmas.
Also, it’s relatively healthy too as long as you’re using wholemeal pasta as per the recipe rather than white pasta.
Not only a perfect delicious budget meal, it’s one that can easily be cooked up when you’re busy and got lots of things going on!
This tuna tomato pasta is suitable for lunch or dinner. Just alter your portion sizes depending on which meal you serve it for.
You could easily cook this up for dinner and take any “leftovers” into work to heat up for your lunch?
I say “leftovers” as that really is a rarity in our house. Even though there’s just the two of us.
Well there’s actually three in our house if you include Begbie, our cat. He eats nearly everything and probably would dive into this pasta if we let him!
Lady Lynne and I always have stocks of essentials in our kitchen cupboards like pasta, tinned tomatoes and tinned tuna.
Its great how those essentials come in handy when you’re least prepared and can be quickly turned into a tasty dish like this quick easy tuna pasta!
What’s your quick “go to recipe” that you always have a stock of ingredients for in your kitchen?
