Whole Wheat Bows w/ Tuna, Spinach, Peas, and Cheese

Submitted by: CURVES_N_CURLS

Introduction

Just something I whipped up in a hurry, using stuff from cans, the cupboard, and the freezer. Trying to get some fiber and protein without braving the snow to go to the store! ;-) [Created 2007-12-05.] Just something I whipped up in a hurry, using stuff from cans, the cupboard, and the freezer.

Ingredients

    * 200g Catelli Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Bows (bowtie) Pasta, dry [About 2/3 box.]
    * 1 (300g 'brick') pkg. Frozen Chopped Spinach
    * 130g Green Giant Summer Sweet Peas, frozen [About 1 cup.]
    * 2 (120g drained weight, each) cans President's Choice Solid White Albacore Tuna (low sodium), packed in water
    * 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
    * 30g Parmesan Cheese, grated
    * 30g Asiago Cheese, grated
    * Freshly ground Sea Salt and Black Pepper, to taste (((NOT included in tracker nutritional information!)))

Directions

1. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, bring the bows to a rolling boil and cook for about 9 minutes. Add the frozen peas and spinach, stir, and continue cooking until the pasta is done 'al dente' (still a little bit firm), about 8 minutes more. (About 17 minutes total.) Drain the pasta and veggies and reserve.
2. Return the large pot to the stove top at medium-low heat, add the pasta and veggies, add the canned tuna, salt and pepper, and the olive oil. Mix all ingredients together, and coat everything with the oil. Heat through.
3. Sprinkle in the grated cheeses, and stir to evenly distribute through the pasta. Remove from the heat, and serve immediately.
4. Makes 6 generous 1-cup 'servings'. Enjoy! :)
