This tasty tuna pasta recipe is so quick and easy to make. And it’s a really affordable recipe to make. It’s full of flavour with zesty lemon, and tuna, making the perfect combination in a pasta dish. Throw in some green beans and garnish with a continental parsley, and you’ve got yourself a healthy, low-calorie meal.
The green beans combined with the pasta ensure that this recipe is packed with fibre and goodness. Plus, it’s a healthy option to incorporate an oily fish to your diet, as they’re rich in omega-3 fatty acids. This is an essential fatty acid, found in foods such as cold water fish, and nuts such as walnuts.
With only 343 calories per serve, this nutritious meal is a great option for weight management. And, it will leave you feeling satisfied.
For those of you who don’t like beans, or might want a softer, easier to chew vegetable, there’s an easy solution. The fact is that you can add any vegetables that you like to this pasta. We often swap out the beans for sautéed mushrooms, or peas. It’s up to you. You can also add different herbs in addition to, or instead of continental parsley. Basil also goes well with tuna pasta recipes.
If you’re opting to have this recipe as a cold meal, we recommend adding in a tablespoon of fat free mayonnaise, a handful of cherry tomatoes (halved), and some corn kernels. But keep in mind that the corn kernels and mayonnaise will substantially increase the calories of the recipe.
Finally, we understand that tuna is not a favourite fish for everyone. You can swap tuna for any oily fish that you prefer, be it salmon, mackerel or sardines.
