Canned tuna pasta ! (Pâtes au thon)

It's been almost 3 years I haven't post. I keep on coming here time to time and recently, I received a new comment on my Ratatouille recipe.
I came on the blog and watched for all this with a bit of nostalgia…
I had this recipe that I wrote and never posted. I decide to post it, without knowing if somebody will read it. But cooking is made to be shared.
I still think of all of you. Usuals readers or just "one step person". And it will always be a great experience for me.
Love.


"This is so long I didn't post a pasta recipe !
We eat them, yet !

Last week, my son invited a friend at home to sleep.
What is great with children when they are together, you don't need to fire your brain to make them eat : potatoes and pasta ! Not in the same time, of course.
So, at noon : potatoes (for them ... for me, green salad ... yeaaaah ...) and for dinner : PASTA (and this time, FOR ME too ) !

No need to make a complicated dish, they won't eat it...
So, canned tuna is perfect !

Here what you'll need for 4/5 eaters :
  • 500 grams of canned tuna
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 40 centiliters of half and half
  • 1 lemon, if you've got ! I didn't but had some lemon juice that I used finally.
  • Olive oil. 
  • and of course, pasta.




Step 1 :
Make brown your onion and garlic, on a low fire, with a pinch of salt until they become golden.


Step 2 :
Add tuna and cream and let it cook for 5 minutes more. Of course, cook pasta in boiling water on the meantime.



Step 3 :
Without making cream boil, pour some lemon. If you had an entire one, grate it ! That's better.
Then, for once (because I never do that, usually), pour cooked pasta in sauce, stir and let it again for 1 minute, not more.



Une tuerie, as we say in french : A killing ...
Don't ask me why. We also say : une boucherie ! A butchery ! This means we just loved it ! Only used for food, of course.
If you use it in another sentence, it keeps its tragic meaning. For example, in a drama, it would mean everyone has been killed.
Maybe we're a little bit sanguineous !

Bon appétit ! .. :D



Recapitulative for 4/5 eaters :
  • 500 grams of canned tuna
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 40 centiliters of half and half
  • 1 lemon or some lemon juice.
  • Olive oil
  • and of course, pasta.
Make brown your onion and garlic, on a low fire, with a pinch of salt until they become golden.

  1. Hello! I have you still in my Feedly blog reader, but I missed this earlier this month - probably because we just moved house, March 1st, from Munich back to Zurich.I still make your quiche recipe often and I love it. I will definitely make this pasta. I'm always looking for new ways to prepare pasta. Thanks!
