How to make Fusilli Tuna Pasta Sauce

Today I made this delicious fusilli with tuna sauce for dinner. Believe me, it turned out so delicious.

The best part?

It’s a super light sauce, little fat, a lot of protein and depending on the pasta you use could be low carb too. I like the veggies pasta.

Yummmm!

This recipe is super easy to make, it’s perfect for those days you don’t feel like cooking (that makes most of my days LOL). It’s made in about half an hour.

I use canned tuna (in water), canned tomatoes and tomato paste. Plus the normal veggies to make it tasty. I know this is not the Italian way but I like quick and this is my quick.

Is canned tuna healthy?

The short answer is YES. Tuna, itself, is an amazing source of high-quality protein with almost no fat. It contains all essential amino acids required by the body for growth and maintenance of lean muscle tissue. Canned tuna can also be a great source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, with 150 milligrams or more per four-ounce serving

Prepare the Fusilli or your favorite pasta according to package instructions.

Chop the peppers and onion in very small pieces, crush the garlic but don’t mix everything.

On a deep frying pan or wok (this one is better) pour the olive oil and put it over high heat. When it is hot, add the onions and garlic, mix them until the get a bit transparent.

Now add the red and green peppers the salt and black pepper. Mix a for a little while, add the tomatoes (the chopped, the puree and the paste) and stir well all the ingredients for a couple of minutes.

Turn the heat down and leave it to simmer for about 10-15 minutes.

After those minutes are up, taste and correct salt and pepper if needed. It’s better to be low salt because usually, the tuna is a bit salty. 

If it’s good for you, then finally add in the tuna, mix well and leave it for 5 to 10 more minutes the most.

Serve and enjoy!

    I can not lie…I am NOT a tuna fan BUT i am betting that I could still use your sauce recipe and toss in something different. I LOVE that you didn’t use sauce out of a can and I am working on perfecting a homemade sauce so maybe I will just take a little help from someone who has already done it! Thank you for sharing at the Friday Follow Along at http://www.frugalfitfamily.com!!!
