Nuri (nools) I don't know what to call it. I kind of threw it together one day and decided it was good. All the measurements are rough approximations. As a college student, I'm a big fan of simple, easy-to-make recipes. This one can be made in one pot if you rinse it out after boiling the pasta.

Time: 30 min
Serves 3-4

INGREDIENTS
-3 cups cooked pasta (I use penne)
-1 can of tuna
-1/2 medium-sized brown onion
-1 tablespoon EVOO
-4 tablespoons sour cream
-1/2 cup of frozen peas
-1/2 tbsp Italian seasoning (or dried basil flakes)
-1 tsp red pepper flakes (or less?)
-salt, pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Cook pasta and drain. Set aside.

2. Dice onion into ~1 cm squares. In a pan, heat the EVOO on medium (not too hot) and let the onion sweat for a couple minutes.

3. After the onions have cooked down a little, add the tuna and sour cream. Stir frequently so that the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom. Add the dried seasoning, pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Cook to a saucey consistency -- should only be another minute or so.

4. Turn heat to low. Add pasta and frozen peas. Stir well so that the tuna mixture coats the pasta evenly. Let it cook until the peas are tender. This should take 3-5 minutes.

It can be topped with cheese or eaten as is. It's really easy and doesn't take much time at all. Leftovers have made a good brownbag lunch the following day.

This is great Nools...I eat tuna quite a bit and am excited to try your recipe!

You can put this in the 'Casseroles' folder as well and call it just that!

Do you eat it cold the next day...and does salmon work as well?

:)
