Canned tuna can be high in sodium, which is why we do not salt this recipe.
What you'll need
Spatula or spoon
1 1/2 cups Spaghetti Sauce
5 ounces Tuna packed in oil or water, drained
2 tablespoons Olives diced
1 tablespoon Basil dried or 1 tablespoon Oregano dried
2 tablespoons Parsley fresh, (optional)
1 Lemon zested (optional)
1/2 pound Pasta whole-wheat
1.Prepare pasta according to package directions.
In the meanwhile, combine the sauce, tuna, olives, dried basil or oregano in a small pot, rice cooker, or microwave.
3.Cook to blend the flavors. Break up tuna, if necessary. This takes about 5 minutes in the pot or 1 cycle of the rice cooker. If using the microwave, cover and heat for 2 minutes; stir, cover, and heat for another minute.
4.Season with pepper and lemon zest. Toss sauce with pasta and additional seasonings.
- If you don’t have a zester, use a vegetable peeler to remove strips of lemon peel (just the yellow part!) then finely chop.
