Recipe: ABC Pasta

It has been awhile and I thought you might want one of our original and most popular recipes for your collection.  It is very simple, designed by kids and very tasty.

ABC Pasta

  • 6 oz ABC Pasta (we find ours at Crest)
  • 2 cans of Tuna
  • 3 T butter
  • Herbs to taste (We tend towards 1/4 tsp dried thyme or 1 tsp fresh-- but have mixed in many others as available)
  • 1/2 cup vegetables -- we favor peas, but also have included broccoli, carrots, squash, spinach and others as available.
  • 1/2 c. cheese -- generally reduced fat sharp cheddar and/or parmesan
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add the pasta -- cooking per package instructions.

  • Meanwhile, Chop up vegetables (if necessary) to get to small bite sized pieces.  
  • Mince herbs finely

  • Add butter, cheese, herbs, vegetables, and tuna to a medium bowl.
  • Add 1/2 c. of the cooking liquid from the pasta - stirring to combine.
  • Add the pasta, salt and pepper - taste and adjust seasonings as necessary

Enjoy with someone you love.
