|160 g||gluten free/wheat free penne||2 cups|
|100 g||tuna, canned, drained and shredded|
|1/4 cup||pesto sauce||65 mL|

Before you start
Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.
- To save time, the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Start cooking the pasta.
- Open the tuna can, then drain and discard the oil. Shred the tuna then add it to a bowl. Stir in the pesto sauce, lemon juice, olive oil, and enough of the pasta cooking water to make a sauce. Mix well, then adjust the seasoning. Generally, you don't need to add salt since tuna is already salty.
- Pour the drained pasta into the serving bowl and mix thoroughly with the sauce. Serve in the warmed dishes.
Parmesan is not added since the flavour of fish sauces in general does not benefit from the addition of cheese.
