1/2
cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 Cook pasta as directed on package; drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.

Tips  

Have a can of diced tomatoes in the pantry? Swap it for the fresh tomatoes, if they’re not on hand.

This dish can also be made with shredded or cubed cooked chicken instead of tuna.
