Pasta With Tuna Cream Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This is a very easy recipe which can be made with either tuna or salmon. I have even made it with crabmeat with good results. It is low in fat and has only 56 grams of carbohydrates. It comes from the cookbook "Lighthearted Everyday Cooking" by Anne Lindsay.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the pasta until tender but firm.
  2. Drain and return to pot.
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; add the onion and cook until tender.
  4. Stir in the flour and cook for a few seconds.
  5. Gradually whisk in the milk and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly until simmering and thickened.
  6. Add the peas, tuna (broken into chunks), parsley, green onions, cheese, and hot pepper sauce.
  7. Pour over the pasta and stir gently to mix.
  8. Serve immediately.

Delicious comfort food with a kick. I haven't had a tuna "casserole" type dish in a long time. I certainly picked a good one to try.
