  • 2 (5oz) cans Wild Planet Albacore Wild Tuna, undrained

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh baby bella mushrooms, sliced

Directions

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
