I started last night :)
(and yes, this means no Emma pictures this post!)
My finished product!
I have a ton of cans of tuna, so I decided to start there. I also have a ton of cans of tomatoes. I found some spinach pasta, knew I had mozzarella in the fridge and decided to throw together a mediterranean type pasta.
1/2 lb pasta
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can of tomatoes, diced (you could also use crushed)
a handful of pepperoncini peppers, minced (you can use more or less depending on how hot you want your dish, I removed the seeds)
1 can of tuna, drained
1/2 c of mozzarella, diced
a handful of basil, chopped
Cook the pasta according to the directions. While the pasta is cooking heat a splash of olive oil in a pan and saute the garlic for 30 seconds. Then add the pepperoncini and the tomatoes, and simmer until the pasta is done. When the pasta is done drain it and add it to the tomatoes (or add the tomatoes to the pasta, depending on what will fit in each pan). Add the tuna, mozzarella and basil and toss. Sprinkle with pine nuts and serve.
I think the dish turned out great and Jamie LOVED it. The flavor combo was very reminiscent of some sandwiches we had in Spain, it had a nice kick and the mozzarella melted to googy goodness :) I'll definitely make it again :)
