One-Pan Creamy Tuna Pasta | Crazy Delicious & Done in 30 Minutes
If you´re looking for a pasta dish that´s packed with flavors, easy to make and comes together in 30 minutes, this One-Pan Creamy Tuna Pasta is your jam. We´re talking a beautiful explosion of goodness, made with the simplest ingredients and done using just one pan. Hello easy clean up 🙂 .
This is the perfect dish for a busy weeknight dinner. Yet it´s bold enough for an elegant weekend lunch next to a bottle of Spanish wine. Either way you dice it, this promises to be one of the best tasting pasta dishes ever.
To cook the pasta, I used vegetable broth, but you can always use water. I just prefer to use broth, as it adds more depth of flavors to the overall dish. I also added a dash of sweet smoked Spanish paprika, to give it a smoky touch that is not over-powering.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: The penne pasta I used took 12 to 13 minutes to get it perfectly cooked al dente. I cooked the pasta for 9 minutes on a high heat and then for another 3 to 4 minutes on a low-medium heat with a lid. Make sure to check the package instructions on the pasta you´re using and adjust the cooking times. So you don´t over-cook the pasta.

After simmering the tomatoes for about 3 minutes, add in 2 cups vegetable broth, mix together and bring to a boil, then add in 2 cups uncooked penne pasta, mix together and cook for about 9 minutes, then place a lid on the pan and lower to a low-medium heat, after 3 to 4 minutes and the majority of the broth has been absorbed by the pasta, turn off the heat and remove the lid
Meanwhile, drain 2 cans of tuna in olive oil into a sieve with a bowl underneath, mix the tuna around to remove any excess oil
After leaving the pasta to slightly cool off, add in the drained tuna, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt at room temperature, 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley and season with black pepper, mix together until well mixed
