Tuna Pasta with Sun Dried Tomato Pesto

Tuna Pasta with Sun Dried Tomato Pesto 1CB I worked for very long hours yesterday and I forgot to eat. I just realized that after my work was done. It was my must-eat-now moment. My poor tummy was already complaining.

When I checked the fridge, all I had were steamed carrots, milk, and wine. I can’t just eat carrots or else I’ll be hearing all sorts of noises from my tummy – a really loud noise of complaint! I need something quick and easy in less than 30 minutes.

I just gathered all the ingredients that were available. Ta-dah! Tuna Pasta with Sun Died Tomato Pesto! The pasta was al dente. The fishy smell  from the tuna was gone.  It was not dry nor soupy, just right!

My tummy was satisfied. No more stomach rumble! I definitely ate first before I took these pictures otherwise I would’ve fainted.

I am eating the last batch while writing this. Yum!
