Meatless Fridays: Century Tuna Farfalle


Of all the tuna recipes I've cooked, the farfalle pasta with tuna is Tom and Aryanna's ultimate favorite! They both love it for the flavor, presentation, and because it only takes me a few minutes for to cook it.

I've been cooking this particular dish for almost ten years already and it remains as the most requested pasta at home.

I also hope this dish will make it into your family's all-time hits!

Century Tuna Farfalle


Parmesan or mozarella cheese

1 can of Century Tuna Hot & Spicy and 1 can of Century Tuna in Brine, drained
Tip: For kids, replace the hot & spicy with Century Tuna Light Flakes in Veg oil. I use two different types of tuna flavors to add dimension to the dish.
Farfalle are a type of pasta. Commonly known as "bow-tie pasta" Kids love this type of pasta because of the kyoot bow-tie shape while grown-ups love it because it's the type of pasta that doesn't overcook too fast.
Fresh organic basil leaves

Easy Peasy:

Step 1: Boil pasta according to the package directions. Don't forget to add salt to the water. No oil necessary.
Step 2: Once the pasta is cooked, strain them in a colander leaving some pasta water in the pan. In the same pan, add the two cans of Century Tuna. Heat up the pasta for a minute or two.
Tip: Leave around 1/4 cup pasta water in the pan to cook the tuna. No cooking oil necessary.
Step 3: Mix the farfalle in the tuna


Keep the plating simple, use a plain white plate or bowl to highlight the shape of the farfalle.

Step 4: Garnish with fresh organic basil and grate your favorite cheese on top. I suggest parmesan or mozarella.
You can serve this dish hot or cold.
