Pasta With Tuna, Bacon, and Broccoli

I know how this sounds, but it is actually a really great combination. You can change it up by adding chicken, shrimp or scallops. I also like sauted mushrooms in it. It's great for left over spaghetti noodles when you're tired of plain old marinara.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. heat olive oil and saute onion and garlic until soft.
  2. add broccoli and tuna, cook until broccoli is tender.
  3. add bacon, Italian seasoning, black pepper and wine. Heat through.

I think this has a lot of potential, but I am not sure that the broccoli is the right vegetable for this. To me, broccoli should be with a cream sauce. I think spinach might go well here, and some chopped tomatoes as well.

I really wanted to like this alot. It is simple and every ingredient sounds great. However, we felt that it was really very dry. It had good tastes and ingredients, but lacked that 'something'. It wouldn't make it as healthy, I understand, but it needs more of a sauce - maybe a low-fat cream of something soup? It's a good basic recipes that needs to be refined. Thanks for posting Little Mommy.
