Lemon Caper Tuna & Noodles with Alfredo

Standard

tunaI found this recipe this weekend (not on Pinterest) and just happened to have all the ingredients. I was thinking “ohhhhh tuna casserole, hmmm”.  Well I was pleasantly surprised. Adding the fresh lemon and capers to the Alfredo sauce was really good and changed the whole flavor of the Alfredo. This isn’t a great picture but I had some fresh mushrooms so I sautéed them and added them at the end. YUM!!!! Maybe next time I’ll add some broccoli or fresh asparagus.  Here’s the recipe & link – I actually halved this recipe.   http://alturl.com/eddxs

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces extra-wide egg noodles (I used linguine)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 15 ounce jar light garlic Alfredo sauce (I used Bertolli)
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained (or more, love capers)
  • 1 12 ounce can solid white albacore tuna, drained
  • Cracked black pepper and/or chives (optional) (or pine nuts!)

Directions

1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Cover and keep warm. Finely shred lemon peel and squeeze juice from lemon; set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine Alfredo sauce, lemon juice, and capers. Heat through.

3. Add tuna and noodles to sauce; stir gently to combine. Return to heat just until heated through. Top with lemon peel and, if desired, black pepper and/or chives.

  1. Funny, I LOVE Tuna casserole (and my husband hates it, bad memories growing up). So when he goes out of town I will try this next time (and invite you over.) 🙂
