Tuna Pasta / Tuna Macaroni

A simple , quick meal in my home is always with tuna or pasta..When it combines together, the making is so simple and fast..Canned tuna is always a handy tool , when we are too lazy or have no time or mood for elaborate cooking.

It was my regular lunch box item in my office ,when Appu was a play school kid and the time when I have no aware of cooking something complex and delicious. But the matters changed..Now with Allah's grace I'm a food blogger with little knowledge about cooking from different sources,especially my beloved mom and mom-in-law.

Ingredients :

  1. Pasta : 250gm
  2. Canned Tuna : 1 can 
  3. Onion : 2 small
