Tuna Pasta with Salty Goodness

This post is a bit dealayed since it’s original inspiration was to clean out my pantry before I move…but now I’ve moved and more importantly now have the time to upload the photos.

This pasta is one of my favorites, not only because it’s delicious but if you are  a can hoarder like me, you are guaranteed a delicious meal without having to run out to the bodega or supermarket. Everything in this dish should be readily accessible in the dusty back corner of your cabinet. It’s very simple: pasta, tuna, olives and artichokes. I added some fresh parsley, but you’re welcome to skip that step.

Tuna Pasta with Kalamata Olives and Artichokes

You will need:

Whole wheat penne (4 servings)

15 pitted Kalamata olives (seriously, they are very important)

1 cup frozen or canned artichoke hearts

1 Tbs chopped parsley

2 Tbs olive oil

Salt and Pepper



1. Boil water and cook the pasta according to the directions.

2. When the pasta is just about done, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the artichokes and olives and cook for 2 minutes. Add the pasta and cook another 3-5 minutes so some pieces become crispy. Add the parsley, salt and pepper for garnish.
