After work I don't usually feel like cooking but I still like to eat a fresh meal. This is easy to prepare, uses store cupboard ingredients and is both tasty and nutritious.
Canned tuna I usually use tuna canned in spring water, but I decided to try it canned in oil. I used half a can of tuna.
quarter of a lemon
This dish is cooked on the hob. The measurements are very general, as it really depends on your own taste how much tuna, lemon and onion you use.
I sweated the onion off, in some of the tuna oil, added the zest and juice of the lemon then the tuna and then added the dill. I add the dill last to preserve its fresh green colour and flavour.
Boil pasta till al dente in salted water.
Add salt and pepper to taste to tuna mixture.
Drain pasta, add to tuna mixture. Stir tuna and pasta mixture thoroughly.
After tasting the tuna, I decided to add some extra flavourings of my own. I first added some parmesan, not to much just a teaspoonful then some Dijon Mustard again not too much, start off with a teaspoon, then add to your taste.
Although I usually buy tuna canned in spring water for health reasons, I am pleased that I used tuna in oil. Somehow the dish tasted creamier to me. I would definitely use canned in oil tuna again for the flavour.
Have a good Friday
