  • 1 cup penne pasta

  • 24 ounces tuna, drained

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar Alfredo sauce

  • 2 ounces grated Parmesan cheese


  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.
