No Meat Pasta

Updated on April 6, 2013

Pasta the most flexible food that I Know

Pasta is always easy to prepare

When it comes to cooking pasta, I think I am above average... through the years of cooking it, I have learned to mix ingredients and always ended up with a new pasta with delectable tastes, may it be pasta with beef, pasta with chicken, pasta with combined pork and beef, seafood pasta and now the no meat pasta.

I have three pasta recipes that I just tried early this year. It is no meat pasta recipes, meaning no beef or chicken, though one recipe has Tuna meat. For those who wanted to rest from eating meats specially in this coming holiday season, these pasta recipes are good substitute. They all taste good in spite of the absense of meat.

the following are "must" haves if you want to have good pasta experience right inside your home: Olive oil, Herbs and spices like oregano whole or ground, thyme, Dried or fresh Rosemary, dried of fresh basil, salt, pepper, nutmegs, olive and capers.

You wont be using all of those in one pasta recipe of course. You can still use them in your next pasta adventure...

Reinvented Spicy Tuna Pasta

I called it reinvented because the sauce is readily available in the supermarket, Delmonte Spicy Tomato, the direction said this is best with Tuna. But I add more to make it a little different.

With the ready to cook sauce in pouch, you wont be doing the saute- ing in garlic and onions anymore, just add the olive oil, then add bottom mushroom( slice thinly), olive if you have one, then add the tuna, then the Delmonte Spicy Tomato sauce, add cream you can add  3 tablespoon or more, your choice or according to your tastes, add grated chees then simmer.

I think all pasta is good to combined with toast bread and cottage cheese toppings
