One day a few weeks ago, I had a bunch of leftover pasta from making the Red Pepper Shrimp, and I didn't feel like going out for food. I was also craving something comforting. I had a few cans of tuna in the pantry and some peas in the freezer, so voila! Homemade Alfredo Tuna Helper. I was surprised at how quickly it came together, almost as quick as if I had pulled it from a box.
And guess what! I think my homemade version tastes so much better! (Sorry Grandma...)
Homemade Alfredo Tuna Helper
1 can tuna, drained (preferably packed in olive oil)
1 c. frozen peas
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 c. creme fraiche
1/4 c. heavy cream
Grated Parmesan cheese
Cook garlic in 1 tbsp butter until lightly browned. Add tuna, peas, creme fraiche, cream and fettuccine. Let gently simmer for 2-3 min until thickened and peas are warmed. Add water to thin sauce if desired. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
