Tuna Pasta Recipe

18 March 2010
I love to cook..full stop. I enjoy cooking for my friends. I am always scouring the internet looking for authentic recipes to go into my arsenal. And at times I can recreate a dish just because I have tasted it. My palate is very sensitive.

Today I decided to make a tuna pasta dish but realized that I didn't have any mayo, so my roommate suggested that I use cheese and I did. And man was it amazing. Here is the recipe. Enjoy

Ingredients
2 cans of Tuna in water
TBSP of crushed red peppers flakes
Tsp of sea salt
Tsp of black pepper
2 garlic cloves -minced
1/2 cup of Fresh Basil
1/4 cup fresh Oregano
2 cups of Rottini Pasta
1 cup of freshly grated Parmigiana Reggiano

Preparation:
Boil the 2 cups of pasta in 4 cups of water for 10 minutes. While the pasta is cooking, mince the garlic cloves, chop the basil and oregano and set these ingredients aside. Once the pasta is ready (al dente, not too hard not too soft) drain the water off in a strainer. Add all of the ingredients into the strainer with the warm noodles and stir until the cheese has melted and serve.

Ecco, a quick recipe for all....
