Laid back night here in the homestead. I didn’t take any meat out, was thinking it was a kraft dinner night, but I decided I would just pantry up something yummy. So here it is! Easy Moms Sundried Tomato Pasta. This recipe is somewhat of an adaption of a recipe a woman I used to live with made all the time, except she used 2 containers of flavoured cream cheese, spaghetti, and no tuna or onion. I never really liked the addition of cream cheese as a sauce, it felt too heavy, but I thought if i used less it could work out better. Less is more, right? It turned out wondeful.
Easy Moms Sundried Tomato Pasta
- 1 handful sundried tomatoes, sliced
- 2 tbsp oil from the sundried tomato jar
- 1 can tuna
- 1 onion chopped
- 1/2 cup cream cheese (or half a brick)
- salt/pepper to taste
Boil some water for your pasta of choice, I used rotini, feel free to improvise on the pasta front and cook that however you would cook normal pasta. In a frying pan, put the 2 tbsp oil in and heat, then salt the oil. Add chopped onion and let it cook until it becomes opaque, a few minutes, and add the tomatoes. Cook that around for a few minutes to let the oils mix around with the onion, it will become a reddish brownish colour from the tomatoe. Add the can of tuna, and cook more, and salt/pepper to taste. Keep that going for a few minutes at med-med low until the pastas nearly ready and then add your cream cheese. I pushed the cream cheese around with a wooden spoon until it melted as best it would and mixed it all together. Spoon it out on to your pasta and eat. Delicious. I could never figure out why I stayed away from sun-dried tomatoes so long.
