Lemony Tuna Pasta

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

This is not your Mom's tuna casserole! Garlicky, lemony and good! Use oil packed tuna please, it makes a HUGE difference to the flavor. A nice white wine and garlic bread complete the meal.

Honestly I was afraid that I wouldnt like the lemon and Tuna together, but boy oh boy.. this was delicious! The parm cheese is a nice touch :-) and I was very generous with the pepper! I made it for myself for lunch (I cut the recipe down a bit, and have some leftovers YUM! hehe), because I didnt know if my family would like it...they are a little traditional lol.... but after having this.. I cant wait to make it again...this time for dinner for my family... Im sure they'll LOVE it. Thanks for the recipe!!
