I dont like to over-complicate things, so here is a VERY quick, 5 min (well sort of) recipe, ideal for lunches when you want something more than a sandwich…

Tuna Pesto Pasta


  • 3 Tea spoons of Green Pesto (Look I know its not handmade, but its quicker alright!!?!)
  • 1 Can of Tuna in whatever you like (oil, water etc)
  • 1 Packet of fresh pasta, Tagliatelle best as its hold the flavour better than spagetti, Penne also ok
  • Some cherry tomatoes halved
  • A dash of grated parmisan


  1. Cook pasta
  2. Add all the rest into a pan, warm up
  3. When pasta cooked, add in all together, toss, mix, amalgamate 
  4. Bit of Black pepper, Parmesan and you are good to go


Preparation time: 0 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Its a bit of a cheat but fills a hole…..
