Spicy, cheesy, and the easiest Tuna Arrabbiata to make — thanks to Contadina.
There’s been a lot of pasta dishes here at home lately. The Christmas rush had us needing quick cooking meals. I’m really thankful that Contadina was so generous and sent over a lot of products. My pantry was well-stocked with pasta and pasta sauces which I can just grab and cook in 15 minutes.
This Tuna Arrabbiata was what we had for dinner the other day when I didn’t have time to go to the wet market.
I know I haven’t been cooking much lately. Friends are sending so much stuff and food at home, it’s hard to cook something. I don’t know where on earth inside the fridge I’ll put it. Plus Twinkle is keeping me a bit busy too.
BTW, update on Lani, my new househelp, she’s with me for almost a month now and I think she’s getting the hang of it here at home. She’s nice and really great at cleaning.
Oh, have I told you she doesn’t eat meat? Yeah, most of what I cook now has to have veggies or seafood so she’ll be able to eat it as well. I think it’s a great adjustment for us ’cause veggies and seafood are generally healthier than meat.
This Tuna Arrabbiata? So easy and delicious. All I had to do was cook the pasta, sauté some canned tuna and black olives — add the sauce , Voila! Good pasta dish in 15 minutes.
Dinner is served.

Easy Tuna Arrabbiata
- 500g penne pasta, cooked according to package directions, I used Contadina brand
- 2 bottles Contadina Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce
- 1/2 cup of sliced black olives
- 1 cup of canned tuna in oil, drained
- grated parmesan cheese for garnish
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Saute garlic in heated oil. Add tuna and black olives and saute for 30 seconds
- Pour in Contadina Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce in a pan. You might find it a bit too thick, add 2 tbsp of water and bring to a boil.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Toss in cooked penne and garnish with grated parmesan cheese before serving.
Love the idea of adding tuna to this! Great idea — thanks. BTW, I’m taking the rest of the year off, so I’d like to wish you a happy holiday season!
THIS is such an amazing combo! I would swap in spaghetti squash and it would still be outstanding!!!
I’ve never thought of making pasta with tuna before! Thats a wonderful idea! My daughter isn’t a huge fan of hamburger so this would be perfect!
Tuna is great in casseroles and packs a ton of protein! I would substitute the olives for some asparagus!
This sounds excellent! I am pinning this for later. My hubby and I both lost pasta and both love olives, so I feel like we’d love this. Thanks for sharing.
Yum! That looks really good! My kids love pasta so I will be trying this for sure!
This sounds so delicious and I love that it’s such a quick and easy meal…I’m always trying to add more of those to our line up!
