Canned Tuna Penne

Once in a while, I'm using canned food to make dish especially when I'm busy. I used tuna in water and just added olive oil. Fresh herbs will be better, if available. I've seen in Food Magazine (June Edition) from the Philippines. It's a must that I added vegetables if I'm eating canned food or any instant food.

4-5 black olives, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
parsley (dried)
basil (dried)
1 small tuna, drained
1 small lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin oil
1 cup penne
salt and pepper
few broccoli, blanched

In a serving bowl, combine olives, garlic, parsley, basil, brocolli, and tuna. Mix gently, breaking up tuna very slightly. Set aside. Cook the penne according to package, or until al dente. Drain, place it in the bowl with the tuna mixture. Dress with lemon and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well, serve immediately.

That's kinda healthy...I love using spinach as one of my healthy sauce. I blend them and it makes for a great penne pasta.

I love canned tuna, especially those spicy ones. It's really all about presentation and how you prepare it. Who would've guessed you used canned tuna with these amazing food photos? Love it, the lighting, everything! :)
