Penne with Pancetta, Tuna, and White Wine

Rated as 4.22 out of 5 Stars

"This is a fresh-tasting pasta dish loaded with good stuff! Pancetta, peas, mushrooms, spinach, flaked tuna, and cherry tomatoes are cooked in a bright-tasting white wine and lemon juice sauce. This recipe calls for canned tuna, but it is also a great way to use leftover tuna steaks."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in pancetta, and cook until browned. Remove to paper towels.
  2. Return skillet to medium heat, and pour in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Stir in onion, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in mushrooms. Cook until they begin to give off juices.
  3. Turn the heat up to medium high, and pour in wine. Cook about 3 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium low. Stir in peas, cherry tomatoes, and spinach. Flake in tuna, drizzle in lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine, and cook until warmed through.
  5. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook penne until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and stir into tuna mixture. Top with freshly grated Parmesan.

The recipe is quick and easy to make but rather bland. I like the veggies and it's healthy but needs something more.

Really tasty and my picky eaters like it!

Healthy and tasty! I used turkey bacon, sweet white wine, and portobello mushrooms. Don't skimp on the salt.

This was pretty good, but it was kind of dry. I left the mushrooms out and used turkey bacon and whole grain penne to make it healthier.

My husband and I both really enjoyed this.

This is a great way to do something different with canned tuna! It's quick and easy to prepare, a very "pretty" dish to present. My boys and I like it alot.
