Tuna has been a staple ingredient in my family household for as long as I can remember. Tuna sandwiches were a major go-to for school lunches and I am that person on the plane that brings an individual tuna container to hold me over during the flight. I know, the smell is terrible but it’s such an easy thing to pack and I have no shame in it.
Tuna casseroles were less of a main meal but only for lack of experience. If I had learned how to make this earlier, I would have been whipping it up a lot more frequently. Especially when there are leftover pasta noodles hanging out in the fridge- three cheers for repurposing ingredients!
This recipe is the perfect combination of ingredients and nutrients. The delicious bowtie pasta provides a great source of energizing carbohydrates. The tuna brings in the lean protein source. The peas and broccoli act as the fibrous vegetable component. Finally, the mushroom soup and oregano offer a comforting and inviting flavour.
Now I know tuna isn’t for everyone so this may not be the classic crowd pleaser, but if you and your family are fish fans, don’t hesitate to whip this up! And if it’s just you who you’re cooking for, consider yourself lucky. You will now have a tasty balanced dish for multiple meals with minimal effort required.
