How to prepare the tuna and mozzarella pasta recipe

  1. First, cook the pasta in abundant salted water for the time indicated on the package.

Let's keep it simple and always wink at the delicious recipes, with tuna and lemon pasta , a fresh first course that tastes like summer.

Tuna and mozzarella pasta: 2 simple variations

Adding vegetables to this first course can prove to be a winning idea that allows you to transform the recipe into a single dish. We then prepared the zucchini, tuna and mozzarella pasta by adding 2 courgettes cut into rounds in a pan immediately after the chopped capers and parsley. Let them cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally and adjusting with salt. Finally, add the tuna and use it all to season the pasta, adding the mozzarella too.

The idea of ​​preparing cold pasta, mozzarella and cherry tomatoes is also excellent. In this case you will not need any pan: gather the well drained and diced mozzarella in a large salad bowl (you can also use the mozzarella cherries), 200 g of cherry tomatoes cut in half and finally the tuna, keeping part of its oil . Cook the pasta in abundant salted water, drain and cool it under the tap before adding it to the other ingredients. Flavor with dried oregano and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.


The tuna and mozzarella pasta should be consumed immediately because of the stringy mozzarella. If you have any leftovers, add it later, putting it back in the pan so you are sure to always have an excellent first course.
