Tuna, mushroom & roasted cherry tomato pasta with rocket

This pasta has to be a winner for the simplicity vs taste factor. It can be whipped up in a matter of 20 minutes and it’s super easy. Its fresh, healthy and delicious, see below for pics and the recipe. Enjoy ♥

 – 1/2 a packet of pasta (penne or shells)
 – 2 tins solid tuna (in oil, Woolies has tuna in soya oil which works well)
 – 1 large punnet cherry tomatoes (halved)
 – 1 punnet mushrooms (sliced)
 – 1 packet wild rocket
 – 1 lemon
 – garlic (optional)
 – white wine for cooking

 – Preheat the oven to 200 degrees, when ready, place the halved cherry tomatoes under the grill (add garlic if want) and roast until the skins have softened (~10min)
 – Whilst this is on the go, get the pasta ready, cook as per cooking instructions. Meanwhile, heat up some olive oil in a large frying pan & start to fry up the mushrooms.

 – once they have started frying, add some squeezed lemon juice from half a lemon, some grated lemon zest & some white wine. I go on taste for quantities, just don’t drown your mushrooms!

 – When the majority of the liquid is absorbed by the mushrooms, add the tinned tuna (do not drain all of the oil, as it is nice to have a bit of the oil in the pasta to prevent it from being too dry) and add the roasted cherry tomatoes.

 – Finally add in the cooked pasta and rocket and toss quickly. Serve immediately.
