Easy Lemon Pasta Recipe: This Zesty Mediterranean Tuna Pasta Recipe Is Loaded With Lemon for Extra Flavor

My daughter gave me half an hour's notice that she would be arriving home from college, and she was starving. What did I have for her to eat? Wanting to give her a savory homemade meal, I looked around for what I could make in less than half an hour. I came up with this flavorful Mediterranean tuna pasta that's loaded with lemon for extra flavor. It was ready and waiting by the time she rolled in. And best of all, she loved it and asked for the recipe! So here it is.

Cuisine: Mediterranean
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6


Here's how to make it:

Cook the pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, in a large bowl, mix olive oil, Mediterranean seasonings, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the tuna and peas, stir to combine.

Drain pasta and let cool for a minute or two. Add cooked pasta to the bowl and toss everything together. Serve and top with shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired.
