I haven't tried Peter's recipe but I make a great tuna pasta which is pretty similar. First I would not use spaghetti fettucine or linguini. Try to stick with penne or rotini. Do not overcook the pasta! Second while the pasta is cooking prepare 2 cans (6 oz each) of drained albacore tuna (flaked) in a large bowl. Use the tuna can to measure the olive oil. I usually fill it up half way. Add olive oil to tuna then salt and pepper to taste. Mince 4 cloves of garlic in bowl and stir. When the pasta is done drain and run under cold water. Then add pasta to tuna mixture. Add more salt and pepper. And 2 more cloves of garlic. You can eat this cold or nuke it in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Not too bad for a simple recipe. Didn't have much in my cupboard but this recipe came out nicely. I didn't have fresh garlic or parsley but still came out fine with garlic salt and dried herbs. I found that I needed a little more oil but maybe I had too much pasta. Either way it was good.
I made this tonight after searching on here for a Tuna recipe. I made this recipe exactly as written EXCEPT I used about 9 oz of spaghetti instead of a lb. It was very very very bland so I added a ton of pepper milk parmesan cheese and salt. It was edible but still not at all what I call good even after I jacked it up. I DO NOT recommend this recipe unless you like bland food.
My Mom use to make something like this. Though she used butter instead of olive oil. I subsituted butter with the amount of oil and added about 4 Tbs. extra. I also added about 2 to 3 Tbs. of lemon juice. Then added what I had left in the fridge. Some peas 1/4 c. of milk about an 1/8 c. of sour cream 1 oz of cream cheese and 1/2 tsp. of thyme. It was an easy quick recipe that was quite pleasing it's one thats easy to make your own.
This recipe def needed added ingredients but it turned out really good. I added old bay to taste half a block of cream cheese 1 1/4 cup of milk 1/3 cup sour cream. Its very simple to make and i had all of the ingredients already at home.
Great base recipe! i added pitted olives capers and artichoke hearts veto'ed the onion and added red pepper flakes before serving. fast too! will make instead of tuna salad sandwiches for a warm lunch! edit: WARNING!! this recipe only tastes good with tuna packed in OLIVE OIL avoid using waterpacked!
