Makes 6-8 servings.

  • Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. kosher salt
  • 1 pack (500 gr.) fettuccine or spaghetti noodles
  • 1 pack (500 gr.) tofu, cubed or grated
  • 2 ½ cups (300 gr.) frozen peas
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 4 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup parsley, chopped 
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 can of tuna in oil
  • Directions

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, then add the pasta and cook for 8 minutes until the pasta is al dente (i.e., not too soft). Drain. 

  • Add the peas and a pinch of salt to a large bowl. Pour boiling water to cover the peas and let sit for 5 minutes, then drain.

    Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat and sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute. Add the tofu (if you’re adding it to the dish) and the soy sauce and cook for another minute. 

    Add the peas and parsley, then lower the heat and cook for one minute. Drain the tuna and add to the pasta and mix well. Pour the pasta mixture into a serving dish and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle chopped parsley on top. Serve hot or cold.
