When the snow and cold prohibit outside activity, one can feel a bit of cabin fever coming on. There is no better quick comfort food than Tuna Alfredo. This recipe is definitely for the fast and the frugal. All you need to have on hand are these basic ingredients: one onion, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, fettuccine pasta, butter and tuna. Almost impossible to imagine that is all you need for a delicious and inexpensive dish.
Begin by sauteing one whole onion in olive oil and coconut oil (2 tbs each).
Add to that, dried herbs: rosemary, mint and oregano. When the onion is browned on the edges, add one small can of albacore tune in oil, do not drain. Stir and add 3/4 of heavy cream. Grate into that now bubbling sauce about 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.
In the meantime, boil your pasta in salted water. Today, I used spinach infused noodles. Once tender, drain and put back into the pot so that you can toss in one dollop of butter, stir gently and then ladle your pasta onto a low lipped serving dish. Pour out your sauce and grate over the top additional Parmesan.
