“I got this recipe off the back of a 7.06oz. (200 kg.) pouch of Kroger brand Light Tuna in water. I made this for dinner tonight and bf and I enjoyed it. I'm posting this recipe as close to exactly as I can directly from the back of the pouch. For the oil in this recipe, I used EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil) and dried herbs. Although I followed the directions on the pouch, except for using 1/2 tsp jarred, minced garlic for the fresh clove of garlic I believe steaming the cut green beans and broccoli cuts would be much better and would retain more nutrients and color by steaming instead of boiling, although I did boil them this time. Next time I make this, that's what I plan on doing. I'm posting here for safekeeping and to share with the 'Zaar community. I hope you enjoy it, too!”

  2. Cook curly pasta according to package directions. Drain.
  3. Combine pasta in a large bowl with 1 tablespoon oil. Set aside.
  4. In a large saucepan bring water to a boil. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and sliced green beans; cook for 2 minutes. Add chopped broccoli and return to a boil for 3 minutes. Drain well. Add the cooked vegetables and the pasta to the sliced red bell pepper and tuna. Pour the garlic dressing on top and toss until evenly coated. Top with parmesan cheese, if desired.
