Penne Tuna Creamy Pasta Recipe

This penne tuna creamy pasta recipe is one of the yummy recipes that my hubby makes.

When I arrived in the UAE on New Year’s Eve of 2008, I discovered that my then fiancée was famous for his creamy pasta dish. His friends were all praises of him and they beamingly call him as the “pasta master”. Friends can really be so supportive right? He can only cook one of the many sauces of pasta then he becomes the master! I couldn’t disagree with his friends because his creamy pasta is certainly delicious! A lot of friends have asked for the recipe and are proud of their own creation as well.

Hubby originally makes the creamy pasta with penne. He would also use flat pasta strands like tagliatelli, linguini or fetuccini, which I like better than penne. And, the flat pasta strands is what he usually brings to work as a treat to our colleagues. Last Thursday, as our contribution to our CEO’s surprise birthday party, he’d gone back using the old preference penne pasta for a change.

Here’s the recipe for this yummy Creamy Tuna Penne Pasta recipe.

1 kg penne pasta
4 cans tuna in oil
2 cans sliced mushrooms
750ml evaporated milk
750ml thick cream
