Tuna Parmesano

Many years ago, when my children were young, I realized  they had an abnormal love of pasta.  Not being a big fan of spaghetti myself, I often searched for new recipes.  I found this in one of my cookbooks for kids.  It's unusual in that it contains whipped cream in the cooking process.  Make extra... they will come back for more.


4 large garlic cloves
18 ounces angel hair pasta
1/2 cup butter
2 cups whipping cream
2 cups frozen peas
13 ounces canned tuna, drained
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

  1. fill a large deep skillet with very hot tap water.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Peel and mince garlic.
  4. Add pasta to the skillet, boil for 1-2 minutes or until pasta is al dente.
  5. Drain, set aside.
  6. Add butter and garlic to skillet; cook over medium-high heat until butter is melted and sizzling.
  7. Stir in cream, peas and salt; bring to a boil.
  8. Break tuna into chunks and stir into skillet with 1/4 cup cheese.
  9. Return pasta to skillet, cook until heated through, tossing gently.
  10. Serve with additional cheese and pepper to taste.

  1. Serves 4.
