New Day, New Recipe
Another new recipe tried. This one pulled from a magazine over the summer.
PASTA WITH GREEN BEANS AND TUNA
Boil 3 oz of fusilli pasta (or other short pasta)
Add 2 oz green beans 1 minute before pasta is finished
In a medium bowl combine 1 can of tuna, 1 TBS olive oil; 1 TBS chopped and toasted almonds; 2 tsps fresh parsley; 1 tsp fresh lemon juice; 1/2 tsp lemon zest; and 1 small clove garlic. Drain pasta and green beans and stir into mixture in bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
The recipe as written serves one. I cooked the amounts of wheat pasta and frozen green beans I thought I would need; left out the parsley; and used walnuts instead of almonds. A healthy salad along with homemade tomato soup for lunch. Yum! This one I will be making again.
Hope you are happy and healthy in your corner of the world. Friendship blessings, Tammy
