This is a fresh and modern take on two recipes from my Italian mother-in-law. Fresh peas in place of canned, sun dried tomatoes in place of heavy tomato sauce and Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water replacing tuna in oil. This is a fast and flavorful meal to put together with just a few shelf stable ingredients.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place the oil from the sun dried tomatoes in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add in onions and garlic. Cook over medium heat until onions begin to turn translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the broth to the onions and bring to a simmer.

  • Stir in the peas and the sun dried tomatoes. Cook for another 3 minutes. Peas should remain crisp so be careful not to over cook.

  • Stir in undrained tuna and heat through. Be careful not to break up too many large pieces of the tuna while stirring. Cook about 2-3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and crushed red pepper if desired.

  • Serve immediately over hot pasta. Garnish with parsley and top with grated Parmesan cheese.

Cook's Note:

You can use any pasta you like. Serve with crusty bread and a crisp green salad.
