Don't know what to cook for dinner ?

I know , you really can't see the flaked tuna in that pasta , but it's there , somewhere ....
Somebody need to buy a better quality canned tuna lol
This simple meal is so easy to prepare and in less that 30 minutes you'll have a delicious and very filling meal .
Planning to add some mozzarella and bake it in the oven but after cooking , I'm so hungry and got lazy so
Don't worry that it looks a bit dry , if you serve it right away as opposed to taking some of photos first .....
