I need to give props to Spaghetti & Tuna cuz it gave me the start to come up with this recipe! It has an Italian flair to it & comes together very quickly. Please feel free to play around with the spices that are mixed into the pasta; these were my personal choices. It's delicious & healthy, too. Please enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook spaghetti until tender but firm (about 3-5 minutes); drain.
  2. Mix the next six ingredients into the pasta; mix well until pasta is coated.
  3. Put the pasta into a small casserole dish. Top with tuna, then cheese. Sprinkle with peas.
  4. I choose to bake this at 350 for 15 minutes until the cheese is melted & casserole is heated through. But I'm sure you could omit the baking step if desired. I usually eat half of this for a lunch with some salad & I'm full!

Made this tonight - made a very nice simple meal. I must admit that I combined all ingredients (not cheese) and put in oven with cheese on top. Added a dash of lemon juice. If anything - its a little dry - but this can be easily rectified.
It an honest, easy, simple meal using things just from the cupboard. thanks for posting.

Since I was making this recipe for the family I used 1 lb. of elbow noodles in place of the spaghetti. I also chose to cut up fresh sugar snap pea pobs into bite size pieces instead of using frozen peas. I did not to bake this as I didn't want it to resemble tuna casserole. The meal was simple to prepare and turned out to be a real kid pleaser. I will make this often. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Reviewed for Spring PAC 2011
