Delicious Tuna Pasta Recipe

Some people like to eat tuna out of a can, but it tastes even better when you use it to make delicious mouth-watering tuna recipes.

Just recently I cooked this tasty tuna pasta recipe and all I used was some basic ingredients. A tuna that has a total of 200 calories, 5 grams of healthy fats, and 40 grams of protein.

This is good news for bodybuilders or for that matter, anybody who wants to gain lean muscle mass.

I’ve heard of people using feta cheese in this recipe because it’s high in protein. But I used mature white cheddar instead, because it’s all I had in the fridge.

This tuna pasta recipe serves 1 person, if you want, you can make obviously make two meals by doubling the amount of ingredients.


  • 1 can of tuna, drained
  • 1/3 cup mature white cheddar
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 onion
