Chilli Tuna Pasta



When I have no idea what to eat or if I am not in the mood to cook, I make chilli tuna pasta. It started off on a whim when I decided to empty a can of chilli tuna onto some pasta and raw veges. A squeeze of lime and it was transformed into a very nice and simple dish.

All you need is any kind of pasta, a can of chilli tuna, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, onions, herbs and lime juice. To add some kick to it, I recommend a dash of fish sauce. Toss it all up and enjoy!

A simple and healthy dish.
Add sambal belacan for the X-factor.
