Shrimp , tuna and corn penne

Love corn ? There's an ongoing blog hop event Little Thumbs Up and this month ingredient is CORN  . If you're cooking or baking with corn this month , do check out the link and join ! You'll be amazed to see all those wonderful recipes with corn .....

Don't know what to cook for dinner ?

Check out your pantry !

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 .....
