Serving suggestions :

  1. Grilled or roasted veggies: Adding cooked veggies to your meal is another fantastic way to include vegetables. Try grilling some zucchini, roasting some eggplants, or frying some mushrooms to get a delicious and healthy side dish.
  2. Roasted Potatoes: Try garnishing your baked tuna pasta with roasted potatoes if you’re craving something more substantial. It is sufficient to slice the potatoes into small rounds, combine them with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and bake them in the oven until they are thoroughly heated through.
  3. Garlic Bread: Add crispy, toasted garlic bread to your baked tuna pasta as a side dish. You can create your own garlic bread by spreading garlic butter on a baguette or by slicing Italian bread and toasting it in the oven.
  4. Salad: To go with a hearty pasta meal, choose a light, crisp side salad. Try a straightforward green salad made of lettuce, cucumber, and tomato or a Greek salad that includes feta cheese, olives, and red onion.
