  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Pasta

 Ingredients List

  • Salt
  • 1 lb Tubetti or elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 c Olive oil
  • 14 oz Tuna packed in water
  • 10 oz Frozen petite peas; thawed
  • 1/4 c Lemon juice
  • 2 tb Green olive paste or pesto
  • 1/2 ts Dried red pepper flakes


Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender but
still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes.

Place olive oil, tuna, peas, lemon juice, olive paste and pepper flakes in
a mixing bowl and mix well with a fork.

When pasta is cooked, drain it thoroughly and return it to the pot, off
heat, add tuna mixture to the pot and toss to combine; cover the pot and
let mixture sit for a minute to heat through. Season to taste with salt and
more pepper flakes if you wish.

Leftovers are delicious served as a salad with mustard mayonnaise dressing
or with a vinaigrette; chopped fresh tomatoes are a nice addition as would
be chopped fresh parsley.
