Creamy Tomato Tuna Pasta

Need dinner on the table in under 20 minutes? This is the meal for you. What is great about  this Creamy Tomato Tuna Pasta is there isn’t anything fancy in it so it’s budget friendly and it makes a lot. This is enough sauce for 400g of pasta but you can certainly double this sauce though if you need to feed more.

I serve this with steamed veggies on the side but there is no reason why you couldn’t add very finely blitzed carrot, celery and zucchini into this dish. If you peel the zucchini the veggie detectives in your house wont even spot the vegetables.

I use my Roasted Capsicum Tomato Paste in this recipe but you can use any tomato paste you like.

If I don’t have any stock paste or powder left I often use a little sprinkle of Herbamare and it does the trick too. I love the flavour. If you don’t have some in your pantry I highly recommend buying some.

I serve this on pasta but would work well on zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this recipe!
    I’ve made it several times though I use canned peeled tomatoes and fresh red capsicum and sometimes add carrots or mushrooms. It’s a great recipe and very easy to adapt for different variations.
