  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain pasta; return to pot.
  2. Place tuna in a skillet over low heat; season with onion powder and salt. Cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir tuna into cooked pasta. Add Alfredo sauce; stir until combined. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Be careful not to overheat the alfredo sauce: it will burn.

What a handy recipe! I didn't have alfredo sauce so made a rose by adding a bit of cream and chevre to a tomato sauce. Great comfort food and my family loved it.
