This recipe is perfect to teach kids who are heading off to college, or for a quick and easy dinner. Actually, I had a roommate who made this (or something similar) to share with me in college. It is all “pantry foods”, but still has a fresh taste to it. Two disclaimers: 1) This is a very hard dish to photograph, so bear with me, and 2) this is a recipe that half of our family LOVES and devours, and it is not the favorite of the other half but they will eat it and think it is fine. I happen to be one of the ones that LOVES it, so that is why I am sharing.
Spaghetti a la Tuna (serves 4)
- 2 cans of tuna (5 oz. each) – drained
- 1 small can evaporated milk
- pepper to taste
- noodles (any type), cooked and drained
1. Empty the drained tuna and evaporated milk into a pan and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Add pepper to taste.
2. Let the tuna simmer until the evaporated milk thickens – you can make the sauce as thick or thin as you would like, just adjust your length of simmering.
This is what a thinner sauce would look like:
And a thicker sauce:
3. Serve tuna sauce over your noodles, and enjoy!
