tastes exactly like kraft's tuna helper (almost anyways), but is almost fat free and extremely healthy
- 1 (8 ounce) box whole wheat pasta
- 3 cups garbanzo beans
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 (4 ounce) cans tuna
- 2 teaspoons crushed pepper
- 1 small onion
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- puree cooked garbanzo beans (the three cups indicated should be already cooked/canned) in a blender -- add water if necessary to get the blender to work.
- chop onions and fry in olive oil.
- add pureed beans, salt, crushed pepper, and tuna to fried onions. add water until the mixture is of sauce consistency and simmer 10 minutes.
- boil pasta as directed on package and drain -- add to sauce mixture.
I'd take this version rather than the boxed stuff anyday! I added shredded cheddar and chopped garlic, but left off the onions since I don't care for them. I also didn't drain my beans, but used the juice and added it into the blender. I think some chopped carrots and peas would be a great addition the next time I make this! Thanks for posting.
Wow.. I was shocked how good this was.. Will make it again
Very Good recipe.I didn't have enough chickpeas so bulked it out (after reading TreeSquirrel's review) with garlic,grated carrot,peas and corn,I will be making this again.Thank you.
