Penne With Tuna In Creamy Black Pepper Sauce

i made this for dinner last nite. it's really easy and convenient. even though i used tuna out of a can and ready-to-use black pepper sauce that comes in a jar or bottle, it still taste delicious. below is the recipe. i'm not very sure about the exact quantity or amount of the ingredients i used becos basically i juz used my instinct and common sense. you go figure.

penne with tuna in creamy black pepper sauce (2-3 servings)


cooked penne
2 chopped small red onions
2 cloves minced garlic (more if you like)
1 knob of butter
abit of olive oil
1 can of tuna
a few lugs or tablepoonfuls of black pepper sauce (i recommend singlong brand, but lee kum kee is fine too)
one big spoonful of tomato paste
1 cup of water (or to your own estimation depending how thick or smooth u want the sauce to be.)
whipping cream or cream
diced tomatoes to garnish (optional)

saute onions and garlic in olive oil and butter till fragrant. add black pepper sauce and tomato paste. stir till blended. add water slowly and stir till you get a thinner consistency. add canned tuna. then blend in the cream. test taste and adjust accordingly. pour sauce over cooked penne and garnish with diced tomatoes and serve. bellisimo!

very da fusion style la ... east meets west .... maybe when you sautee'ing the onions and garlic you can put in the pasta to sautee as well, then you throw the rest in ... think it will make the pasta fragrant ... dunno? whatcha think? think i'll try both and the we'll have Lynx make a commentary on it ... since the comments made are so long and detailed.

if one is not lazy, they can make black pepper sauce from scratch also; it's not too difficult. I'll try to post up the recipe if I should ever make black pepper crabs again.
