If you are observing Lent like myself, you probably wonder every Friday what you are going to eat for dinner. Sometimes it is hard to think of another seafood or vegetarian dish that isn’t too costly and/or time consuming. This 30-minute meal will do the trick!

Sure, you can eat crawfish or shrimp every Friday but the crawfish season we have been having hasn’t been one to brag about. The price of crawfish has yet to go down and it’s practically like looking for gold out there. Boiled shrimp is also a delicious option, but that can be costly as well.

My tuna pasta with capers, spinach, and tomatoes is not only healthy and satisfying, it is super fast and easy. This dish packs tons of flavor with healthy essentials your body needs. For this recipe you will need:

1 large can tuna in water, drained
2 cups spinach
2 Tbsp capers
2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut lengthwise
1 shallot, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup vegetable broth
Penne noodles
Parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook noodles until al dente. Then over medium heat in a large pan, saute the shallot and tomatoes for 2-3 minutes until shallot softens. Add the minced garlic and saute together for an additional 2 minutes. Next, add the 1/2 cup white wine and 1/2 cup vegetable broth. Simmer on low for 5 minutes.

Add the capers, spinach, and tuna and gently mix together. Once the spinach has wilted, season with salt and pepper to taste. Lastly, toss with penne noodles and cheese. You’ll love all of the great flavors this dish has and your body will reap the benefits. Bon Appetit!
