Ingredients
  • Salt
  • 1 pound tubetti, or elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cans (7 ounces each) tuna packed in water
  • 10 ounce package frozen petite peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons green olive paste or pesto
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
Directions

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes.

Place olive oil, tuna, peas, lemon juice, olive paste and pepper flakes in a mixing bowl and mix well with a fork.

When pasta is cooked, drain it thoroughly and return it to the pot, off heat, add tuna mixture to the pot and toss to combine; cover the pot and let mixture sit for a minute to heat through. Season to taste with salt and more pepper flakes if you wish.

Leftovers are delicious served as a salad with mustard mayonnaise dressing or with a vinaigrette; chopped fresh tomatoes are a nice addition as would be chopped fresh parsley.
