At the Dr. Yum Project, we love getting kids cooking in the kitchen! Rocco, age 7, loves to cook up this recipe for his family (with a little help from Mom, when needed). This easy lunch or dinner uses ingredients straight from the pantry and comes together in no time.
(elbows, penne, or rigatoni)
elbows, penne, or rigatoni
2 5 ounce cans
5 ounce cans
(can use 1/2 cup mayonnaise total instead)
Boil water in a medium saucepan for pasta. Once the pasta is cooked to your liking, remove some of the pasta water and set aside. Add frozen peas to the cooked pasta and stir before draining. Drain the pasta and peas and return to the saucepan, or a large bowl. Add the tuna, mayonnaise, and yogurt. Stir, breaking up the tuna into small bits. Add some of the set aside pasta water if needed to loosen the mixture. Add salt, pepper, and optional garnishes. We recommend eating any leftovers straight out of the fridge, like pasta salad!
