IntroductionThis is a very fresh and tasty pasta dish
The high fat count is from the oil in the fish, you could use tuna canned in water but it doesn't seem to have the same smooth texture. This is a very fresh and tasty pasta dish

While this is slightly high in calories and fat it is low in saturated fat and high in fibre if you use the whole wheat pasta. You can also substitute the pasta for Trim Pasta or Shirataki noodles for a lower caloric value.
You could even divide the servings into 6 and serve with a salad.
Cook pasta until done to your taste. Drain.
Put the cooked pasta into the bowl with the tuna mixture and toss until combined. Season with the black pepper
