This is a dish for when you want something comforting, but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. It’s also perfect for when you need to use up some pantry staples. Penne Tonno e Piselli is a simple pasta dish made with tuna, peas, and a few other pantry staples.
The result is a flavourful and hearty dish that can be on the table in under 30 minutes. This dish is also versatile, feel free to add in some extra vegetables or change the pasta type, works well with rigatoni too.
The key to making this dish successful is to use quality ingredients. I always use high-quality tuna, and I prefer to use frozen peas. This dish can be made ahead of time and reheated or made fresh and served immediately. Either way, it is sure to please your family and friends.
Whether you’re looking for a quick weeknight meal or a cosy weekend lunch, this penne pasta dish will hit the spot.
