The Lazy Vegetarian

Monday

Recipe - Tuna Spaghetti

Warning: This is one of the promised (threatened) pescatarian fish recipes. You can substitute "tuno" to make it vegetarian, which Ryan says is a good replacement.

Serves 2 - 3

8 ounces thin spaghetti*
8 ounces of favorite spaghetti sauce**
1 can tuna, packed in water, drained
green olives (to taste - we use a lot), whole or cut in half
+ a little of the liquid from the olive jar

Cook the spaghetti per package instructions. Add tuna and olives (+liquid) to the sauce. Heat the sauce. Serve sauce on spaghetti. Sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese (or soy equivalent), if desired. This might sound strange, but it incredibly tasty!

Serve with a fresh salad.

Note: Not a low sodium recipe.


* I usually use "Healthy Harvest" brand thin spaghetti for this recipe. You can also use a whole-wheat pasta for extra nutrition.

** My grandmother's original recipe actually used condensed tomato soup instead of spaghetti sauce. If you want to be completely authentic, give it a try.

If god didn't want us to eat animals, why did he make them out of meat?

I don't know if I could ever give up meat. It tastes too good and I have no willpower.

Why do people feel the need to be rude on a clearly vegetarian website?
If you don't agree with the content, use those manners your parents should have taught you. Either say something nice, or don't say anything at all.

If I liked tuna, I'd try that recipe Annie.I could always substitute in tofu crumbles to make up for the lost protein that the tuna added.

I am a full-fledged carnivore, but appreciate almost every vegetarian recipe I've come across (in fact, I eat exclusively veggie pizza). This recipe will be my next effort - sounds GREAT! Thanks!

I love both tuna and spaghetti, but never thought of combining them. What an idea! I will try this recipe-- this weekend :)
Thanks Annie!!

By the way, I love your recipe blog! (I post 1 new one per week on mine, from meat to sweet, mainly the latter ;)

Sounds interesting... I may try it! I have a killer marinara sauce recipe I could use. :-)

I hope you're not one of those people who think they are vegetarian and eat fish. You give we REAL vegetarians a bad name. Get a dictionary!!!!!!!!!

I think Annie is pretty up front about the content of her blog. There is no reason to be hostile about it. Besides, I think it is a little presumptious to assume that the only "REAL" vegetarians are those motivated by animal rights issues. I am a vegetarian, but for health reasons and I think that I'm plenty "real". Why not show the same courtesy on the Internet that you would show if you were face to face with someone?

Plus in addition to Osnibore, it does state that its a pescatarian recipe, not vegetarian

By Anonymous Bentos, at 4:41 AM  

hey Pikkel Weezel, humans are made out of meat too...are we supposed eat them too?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:01 AM  

As a pescatarian ( a person who only eats fish and/or other seafood) I think this would be a new and good recipe to try out. Thanks!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:13 PM  

hmm... look good. I will try this recipe.

Wow. People are too judgemental. Anyway, this sounds interesting. I will give it a go. Thanks!

Awesome! Tuna + spaghetti = deliciousness abound!! Thanks for sharing this recipe! ^_^

I'm really disappointed with the "real" vegetarian comment. Anyone who makes any kind of stride towards eating less meat is doing a great thing for their health, the environment, and animals, and should not be made to feel attacked by these self-proclaimed "real" vegetarians. The criticism is such negative energy! We don't need labels differentiating exactly what we do and don't eat. Vegetarianism shouldn't be an exclusive club, and we should support anyone who wants to adopt the lifestyle, not knock them down.

Thank you for the recipe. It's a good one, especially when in a rush. Do ignore the insensitive comments on your blog- you have generated alot of positive support otherwise! Thanks for sharing!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:54 AM  

As a new pescatarian (for health reasons) I am appreciative of your blog. I am learning to rethink eating in and eating out and I will definitely try this recipe! Please look beyond those who have unkind things to say....your efforts are outstanding and appreciated!
