Tuna Pasta in Creamy Tomato Sauce

It's been a long time since I last posted what I been cooking in my kitchen. Now let me share a very simple pasta recipe that I love to cook when I was staying in Melboune.

You will need;

400 grams pasta

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pcs white onion chopped

1 clove Garlic

1 cup mushroom sliced

5 large Sun-dried tomatoes; chopped

1 can hot and spict tuna; drained

1/4  nestle cream

1 1/2 cup tomato sauce

sweet basil

salt and pepper to taste

Then what you'll do:
Cook pasta according to package instructions for al dente.
Heat oil over medium heat and onion, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and mushroom. Cook until garlic is golden. Throw in the drained tuna, then the chopped basil then add the tomato sauce, mix to blend well and heat through. Cook for about one minute more. Keep sauce warm.

When pasta is just about done, add cream to sauce and stir until it is well absorbed. Don't allow the sauce to boil at this point. Drain penne and add to sauce mixing well. Sprinkle with chopped fresh basil before serving, if desired.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with garlic bread. Yumm!
