Quick & Hearty Italian Tuna Pasta Delight











Discover a quick Italian delight with this Tuna Pasta recipe, merging tender pasta with flavorsome tuna and a kick of chili for a Mediterranean twist. Perfect for a satisfying meal that's both delicious and healthy.


Step 1: Cooking the Pasta

Start by bringing a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta shells and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Once cooked, drain the pasta and give it a minute to cool off a little. This will ensure your pasta doesn't turn mushy when mixed with the dressing.
Pro Tip: Add a splash of olive oil to the boiling water to prevent pasta from sticking.

Step 2: Prepping the Mix

While the pasta is relaxing, grab a small skillet and heat it up over medium fire. Drizzle in your olive oil, followed by the diced red pepper and minced garlic. Stir-fry for about 1-2 minutes, just until they're fragrant and slightly softened. This little step brings out an incredible depth of flavors that'll make your pasta dish anything but ordinary.
Pro Tip: Keep the skillet moving to avoid burning the garlic.

Step 3: Bringing It All Together

In a large mixing bowl, toss the now slightly cooled pasta with the red pepper and garlic mix. Add in the drained tuna, chopped fresh parsley, sliced chillies, and a liberal squeeze of lemon juice for that zesty kick. Season with ground black pepper according to your taste. Simply stir everything together until well combined. Your delicious Italian Tuna Pasta is ready to be spooned into serving bowls, ready to dazzle your taste buds with every bite.
Pro Tip: Letting the pasta cool for a minute before mixing prevents the tuna from falling apart.
