Tuna casserole for men who can't cook.

I love tuna!



Tuna Casserole.

 As I wrote before in my Eggplant Lasagna hub I can not cook.  Circumstances have forced me to learn how to cook.  Today, 09/02/2009, I made a tuna casserole.  This was my first and it was good.  I served it to family.  They were surprised that I made the tuna casserole.  Nothing ventured  nothing gain.


Two 5 oz cans of chunk light tuna in water (pour off the water)

Two cups of dry small shell pasta (made from 100% durum semolina)

One tsp of salt

One tsp of pepper

Two cups of frozen peas

1/4 cup of finely chopped onions

Two chopped cloves of garlic

Two tbsp of Mayonnaise

I first boiled the water for the small shells putting 1 1/2 tsp of salt in eight cups of water into a pot.  Once the water came to a full boil I put the shells in the water.  I stirred the pasta (shells) constantly to prevent them from sticking. Once the water and shells started to boil again I stirred intermittently for 10 minutes.  The small shells are soft at this point.  I drained the pasta and then covered it to keep them very hot.  Next I mixed the tuna with the onions and the garlic. I then placed the hot pasta into a glass mixing bowl.  I stirred in the uncooked frozen peas into the pasta.  I then stirred in the tuna ,onion, garlic mixture into the pasta and peas.  I then stirred in two heaping tablespoons of mayonnaise. I then sprinkled one teaspoon of salt and one teaspoon of pepper. I then stirred all the contents completely. I let this set for 30 minutes to marinade then serve.

You will get about 10 to 12 one cup servings. One cup of this tuna casserole will be about 300 calories.
