1 pot pesto pasta with added protein

Updated: Aug 7, 2020

Your average pesto pasta bulked out with green veggies & tuna all made in 1 pot!


1 mug of fusilli or penne Pasta

1 mug of broccoli

¼ mug of frozen peas

½ an avocado

1 x 160g tin tuna

2 tbsp of pesto (or more/less if you fancy)


Place the pasta into a saucepan and cover it with boiling water.

Boil for 8-10 mins (depending on how cooked you like your pasta.) Adding a dash of oil can help prevent the pasta sticking together.

Once the pasta has been cooking for 2/3 minutes, add the broccoli to the pan of pasta and top up the water level so that all the food is submerged.

Then add the peas to the pasta & broccoli 3 minutes before the pasta has finished cooking.

Drain the pasta and veg using a sieve and place in a bowl.

Slice the avocado into chunks and mix into the pasta with the pesto and tuna.

& now it's time to eat...
