This Recipe Rocks!

I am a mediocre cook, so when I come across a recipe that is both easy and delicious, I get very excited. This one is from 50 Thrifty Meals: A Green Guide to Living Better With Less by Ramona Hamblin.

Tuna and Tomato with Pasta

2 6oz. cans of solid light tuna in olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 28 oz. can of crushed or chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoons of capers
1 lb. of tubular pasta
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Drain the oil from the tuna into a pan and saute the onion in oil until translucent, add tomatoes, sugar, and tuna, cook for 4-5 minutes. In the meantime cook the pasta. Toss pasta with tuna mixture in large bowl and sprinkle with capers and parsley.
[I used 3 cans of tuna packed in water and sauted the onion plus some garlic in canola oil.]
