Its been a while since I've posted a recipe on Saturday.  I've been busy with other stuff this past few Saturday.  Hopefully I could write regularly on weekends (fingers crossed).

Pasta, an easy dish you can whipped up under an hour.  It was almost a month or two since I cooked pasta in our home.  This pasta recipe is so easy and basically, you can throw everything in the pot after sauteing the garlic in olive oil.  You can add any meat you want but since I had so much pork and chicken this week, I decided to simply add canned tuna to the dish.

Unlike my previous post Tuna Pasta in Creamy Marinara Sauce, I added the all purpose cream to the cooked pasta and then I poured over the Marinara Sauce.  I also used linguine pasta for this dish.  I find using tuna fillet in can (San Marino brand) gives a bite to this dish, you could also use tuna chunks in can for more chunkier texture.  Like what I've said, I used San Marino Tuna Fillet in Water and aside from adding a bite to the dish, compared with using tuna in vegetable oil, this has a just a little or hint of the fishy taste of tuna, which I find more enjoyable.  The chopped parsley adds a nice refreshing taste to the mouth.  To counter balance the acidity of the tomatoes, I added a tablespoon or two of sugar.


Marina Sauce
3 Tablespoon                                       Olive Oil
6 cloves                                               Garlic, finely chopped
2 450g grams                                       Diced Tomatoes in Tomato Juice
1 1/2 teaspoons                                   Italian Seasoning
4 Tablespoons                                     Chopped Parsley, extra for garnish
1 to 2 Tablespoon                                White Sugar
1/2 cup                                                Sliced Olives
2 cans                                                  Tuna Fillet in Water
Salt and Pepper to Taste

400 grams                                            Linguine Pasta
125 grams                                            All Purpose Cream

1.  Cooked pasta according to package instruction.
2.  Heat olive oil and saute the garlic.

5.  Season with salt and pepper.  Taste and adjust according to you liking.  (Remember to taste before adjusting any of the seasonings.  We are not professional chefs so we are not obliged to the taste-adjust-taste protocol of those amazing chefs we watched on the television.)
