Tuna-Lemon Penne Pasta

I had another chance of traveling out-of-town for a night on a weekend, following a hectic schedule and several sleepless nights. That meant cramming to pack my things while cooking at the same time... so that there will be food on our table while I am gone.

Opening the cupboard and seeing the penne pasta and can of Century Tuna Flakes, I knew exactly what to do. I just took two pieces of lemon and a stalk of leeks from the veggie bin and all the other ingredients I needed were spices. 

This is what I had in mind--- Tuna-Lemon Penne Pasta. Another fast food meal! And this is how it turned out.

Here's how I did this.


1 tbsp garlic, minced
1 medium onion, sliced
1 large can Century Tuna in oil
2 pcs lemon, halved and squeezed
Pinch of salt, pepper, thyme, basil, rosemary, cayenne powder of any spice of choice
Penne pasta, cooked according to package instruction
1 stalk leeks, sliced diagonally


1. Saute garlic, onions and tuna in oil.
2. Add lemon juice, salt and spices of your choice.
3. Add cooked penne pasta to sauteed tuna and mix thoroughly.
4. Top with leeks and serve with garlic bread.

Hmmm... I just love how the spicy flavor of the cayenne powder blended with lemon.  Have a great week ahead!
