Creamy Tuna & Cherry Tomatoes Veggie Pasta – #BeInformedXFoodieswithLove
This Creamy Tuna & Cherry Tomatoes Veggie Pasta recipe is created in collaboration with Foodies with Love, a homegrown healthy homemade dried veggie pasta brand.
(Serves 2 kids under 5)
1/2 cup shell veggie pasta by Foodies with Love
1/2 cup spiral veggie pasta by Foodies with Love
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 can tuna flakes in extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup cherry tomatoes or more if you like
220g (half a bottle) Classic Marinara Sauce by Foodies with Love
Pasta water (from cooking the veggie pasta)
1 tablespoon cream cheese
1. Boil water in a pot. When water is boiling, pour in both types of veggie pasta. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Drain the pasta and keep aside a bowl of the pasta water.
2. Drain the oil from the tuna can into a frying pan; heat up the oil over medium-high heat. Add in chopped onion and garlic, then stir fry until fragrant. Add in tuna flakes and stir for a few minutes.
3. Add in cherry tomatoes and Classic Marinara Sauce and stir until combined. Add in some pasta water and the drained pasta.
4. Mix all ingredients until well combined. Lastly, stir in cream cheese and simmer until sauce thickens to the consistency you like.
Note: I don’t add extra salt because this meal is for my kids (20-month old baby and 5-year old boy).
