Quinoa Mac & Tuna
Makes 4 servings
2 (5oz) cans Wild Planet Skipjack Wild Tuna or Albacore Wild Tuna, undrained
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup fresh baby bella mushrooms, sliced
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1/4 cup roasted red peppers, sliced
4 cups small quinoa elbow pasta, cooked
3/4 cup soft cheese spread (like Boursin or Alouette)
2 cups water
1/4 cup fresh scallions (green & white parts), thinly sliced
Place the tuna with all of the natural liquid from the cans into a mixing bowl. Gently flake the tuna into small/medium size pieces, then lightly toss with the natural liquid to evenly blend. Place in a covered container.
Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add broccoli florets, roasted red peppers, cooked pasta, soft cheese spread and water. Continuously stir gently to combine and sauté for 2-3 minutes to heat through and make a creamy sauce. Add tuna and scallions. All ingredients should be lightly coated in the creamy cheese sauce. Gently stir to heat and evenly combine, then serve.
