Recipe: Tuna Philly Pasta: frugal

It's been a good last few days for recipes.  Here's the final one for today.  it was my evening meal and very nice it was too.

Tuna Philly Pasta

Ingredients: to make one portion
little butter or oil
half a small onion, peeled and sliced
three or four mushrooms, sliced
half a tin of tuna (I used Morrison's value tuna at 59p per can) - the other half will make a tuna salad roll for tea tomorrow
a dollop of philly light (full Philly would be nicer but it's those calories! - and it was on special, so cheaper than the supermarket own)
50g spiral pasta, cooked and kept warm
some chopped parsley
sea salt, white pepper to taste

Heat the butter or oil in a pan, add the onion and saute until softening.
Add the mustrooms, stir well and continue to sautee for another few minutes.
Add the tuna and mix gently.
Add the dollop of philly and stir while it melts into the vegetables and tuna.
Add the cooked, hot pasta and stir until everything is mixed well.  Add a bit more philly if there isn't enough.
Season to taste
Serve with a sprinkling of parsley on the top.

Filling and tasty.
