Tuna Rigatoni with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

This is another recipe from Pampered Chef’s 29 Minutes To Dinner.  My daughter picked it out.  She loves tuna, so this sounded especially delicious to her.

She picked out a winner.  Seriously, this was delicious and super, super easy!


Tuna Rigatoni with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

8 Ounces Uncooked Rigatoni
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
8 Sun-Dried Tomatoes Packed In Oil, Drained
1 1/2 Tbsp Dried Parsley
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Cloves Garlic, Pressed or Minced
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (More or Less, To Taste)
2 Cans Tuna, Drained

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and cook rigatoni according to package directions.

While the pasta is cooking, pat tomatoes with paper towels to remove oil and dice.


Heat the olive oil in large skillet. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until garlic is light golden brown.


Immediately stir in the tuna and tomatoes, and allow to cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes.


Add rigatoni, cheese, and parsley and toss to combine. Enjoy.

  1. Love Tuna Casserole so this “updated” version of tuna and noodles should be great! Thanks for the recipe.

      You’re welcome! I hope you enjoy it! I’m always looking for ways to use tuna since it’s inexpensive and the kid gobbles it up 😉

    I’m not a big fish fan, even tuna, so I’ll never try this, but good job!
