Print Recipe


  • 200 g penne pasta
  • 3 cans tuna chunks in sunflower oil
  • 160 g bistro salad
  • 1 can sweetcorn
  • 1 piece cucumber
  • 1 piece red bell pepper
  • 6 pieces springs onions
  • 1 bunch chives
  • 1 piece lemon juice
  • 1,5 tbsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 50 ml sunflower oil


  • Put the pasta to boil in water with a spoonful of salt, which, after they have cooked, we have to cool under a stream of water. Until the pasta boils, will clean and cut the vegetables.
  • Start with the cucumber that you will cut into small cubes. You will do the same with spring onions and the sweet red bell pepper, which will chop into identical pieces.
  • Put the salad mix in the bowl over which add the cucumbers cut into cubes. Follow the rest of the vegetables, spring onions and red bell peppers cut in cubes.
  • Add the canned tuna with sunflower oil and canned corn strained from its liquid. Season with sea salt, ground pepper and dried oregano, then mix lightly.
  • Continue with the cooked and drained pasta, two-thirds of the chopped chives and the lemon juice, and mix again.
  • Taste and, if necessary, season more. Because the pasta absorbed a lot of the juice from the salad, I added a little sunflower oil. Rest 15 minutes in the fridge.
  • Serve at room temperature on a flat plate, sprinkled with the remaining chives chopped on top and a glass of white wine.
