Tagliatelle with TunaCourse: DinnerCuisine: ItalainDifficulty: Easy
We love pasta in this house. It is so easy to make for a quick, healthy and filling meal. It is a perfect meal as pasta goes with everything. Just pasta with olive oil, finishing salt and fresh grated parmesan cheese. We will sauté or roast vegetables and toss with olive oil and cheese and pasta. I love this recipe as it is light and tastes of the sea. Make sure to use Italian tuna in water in fine but in oil the flavor is much better. Lots of lemon here-No Cheese.
