3 cloves of garlic
a handful of fresh basil leaves
1 cup pasta (I used spaghetti noodles)
1 can tuna
a pinch of salt
a pat of butter
1 tablespoon olive oil and vinegar salad dressing
1 tablespoon of mayonaisse
1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)
Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package. Mince the garlic and throw it in with the pasta. Add the dash of salt and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. I chose to add it to the water and also another teaspoon after the pasta was drained. I don't know why. But you can do either or both.
Once the pasta is cooked, drain it. Add in another teaspoon of olive oil if you want. Stir the butter in until it's melted. Mix in the tuna and the basil and then add in the mayo and then finally the olive oil and vinegar dressing.
And eat it up! As always, if you have any suggestions for this novice cook who still doesn't really like to cook but is willing to learn, please share :)
