Dinner in 30 Minutes
Creamy Tuna Alfredo
Creamy tuna alfredo is a delicious combination of pasta, garlic, table cream, parmesan, and tuna. The outcome of this dish is simply stunning. It is a great midweek meal as it can be cooked in under 30 minutes. It is part of my weekly menu, and I often serve it up on a Wednesday. One of the great things is, most people will have all the ingredients in their kitchen.
There are a few changes you can make to the dish if so desired. For example, you can use heavy cream or even half and half. If you are diet conscious, you can use milk; although, the creamy consistency will not really be achieved. Real Parmesan or powdered can be used as well. If you are a garlic lover, you can add more. Additional spices can be used too. Some hot chili flakes would be a nice touch. Remember to use a good brand of tuna as it will make the world of difference.
