Tuna Fusilli Pasta

The word ‘summer’ carries with it family bonding and food and both. A couple of weeks ago, I hosted a 3-day reunion for my family. Needless to say, it was so challenging because I did most of the preparation plus the food. I am sharing you one of my recipes which you may find time reading or maybe try cooking (just maybe). Please check this out!

4 Cups Fusilli Pasta

1 & 1/2 Cups of Tuna in brine

1 Cup carrots

4 Tomatoes (medium size)

2 tbsp Olive oil

1 Minced Onion 

1 Red Bell Pepper

1 Clove garlic 

1 tsp black pepper (crushed)

1 tsp Chili powder 

5 tbsp Tomato Sauce

1 tsp Salt to taste

3 leaves of sweet basil

Here’s How:
