Pasta with tuna fish, cheese and green olives

Jump to Recipe

Here is the second tuna pasta recipe I am sharing today. This one is very cheesy and a little bit more naughty. We all feel like it from time to time. 😉

What makes this tuna pasta with mayo naughty is mostly mayo and cheese. There is a lot of cheese in this one!

And to balance it out there are lots of green olives in this tuna pasta with green olives. They are more vibrant if flavor and so they lift the whole dish and add nice color too!
