tuna + herb pasta
Firstly, this is not a foray into food blogging…think of it more like a friend handing you a quick and easy recipe to make when inspiration and interest is waning. If your meal repertoire is anything like mine, you might need a break from the monotony of it all. I’ve found that in the past year or so I’ve been making the same meals – week in, week out – simply because I know they’ll get eaten (and more often than not, there’s usually one person who turns their nose up).
Tuna + Herb Pasta has been a mainstay in our household for a good few years since I found something similar in Tess Kiros’ book Apples for Jam. It’s affordable, uses basic ingredients, can be made in about 20 minutes and, most importantly, it’s delicious. I make it once a week and it’s gobbled up for dinner and usually re-heated for lunch the next day (I send it for school lunch in a funtainer thermos – we own two of them and they are fabulous!). It also makes a lovely salad come summertime.
If you want to bulk the meal up a bit, serve with blanched broccolini + beans, a big salad and a few chunks of sourdough…then imagine you’re eating it on a banquet table in a Tuscan villa.
