When I conceptualized this humble food blog of mine, back in 2010 (but was officially launched in January 2011), I had ten SECTIONS in mind. My constant deliriously delicious dining discoveries focuses on only a few sections - Bon Appetit, 7107 Flavors, Burp - for eat-all-you-can dining spree, Nothing But Chocolate and Desserts Unlimited. One section that I have not yet tackled or got the chance to post a single article is the section Kitchen Goddess.
Kitchen Goddess is all about kitchen tips and easy-to-do recipes. My first Kitchen Goddess post is just that - an easy to do recipe which my family has enjoyed over the years. My own version of Tuna Basil Pasta.
I first encountered the idea of tuna pasta when I had a meeting with my previous TV producer for the cooking show we were doing back in 2003. Her recipe was quite different though, using black pitted olives, capers, chili flakes and tuna flakes. It was pretty good that I wanted seconds of this interesting dish. Back then, I was only familiar with two kinds of pasta - tomato and cream based.
One day when I was famished and looking for some snacks, all I could find were spaghetti noodles, garlic, tuna flakes and some spices. Good thing there was a bottle of Olive oil and a new dish was born.
Here's my simple, easy-to-do, absolutely yummy and healthy dish. Hope you enjoy!
