Easy Tuna Pasta Recipe (Ready in 15 Minutes)

This Tuna Pasta Recipe is quick, healthy, delicious and comforting, with all the ingredients ready in your pantry!

The canned tuna we use here is preserved in olive oil. When compared to the ones that are preserved in water, the tuna preserved in oil is much more flavorful and tasty, which elevates the pasta dish. 

We chose the Canadian made pasta from Holista, which is a wheat-based pasta that is made with okra, lentils, barley and fenugreek. The Holista Pasta has also proven to stabilize your blood glucose levels, and provide sustained energy and help with weight control. This pasta also cooks in 3 minutes, which saves you time when you are in a rush. You can choose from spaghetti and linguine in our Holista Pasta line. 

Oro de Genave is the choice of olive oil here. Unlike other olive oils, Oro de Genave can withstand higher temperatures, so it is unlikely that the Oro de Genave will burn or release any health harming compounds. Get the Oro de Genave Organic and Oro de Genave Seleccion here.
