Tuna Pesto with Parmesan Cheese

Before sleeping earlier this morning, I decided to cook one of the best ingredients I have bought so far. I have been very eager to try this, most especially that I really love eating Pastas. However, due to this negative review I have read online with this McCormick seasoning mix, I became too hesitant to try it out because it might not taste delicious with the pasta I have been dreaming to cook for such a long time. Haha!

One of my former officemates taught me how to cook this pasta, but since I do not have enough tools in the kitchen, I was left with no choice but to buy cooked pasta instead.
I already know how to cook different types of pastas from white to red, however this pasta is my favorite of all and I am really clueless where to buy the ingredients. Ahaha! Thank you to McCormick Pesto seasoning; as I can already cook my favorite Tuna Pesto.  
I should have not let the negative review stopped me from trying this seasoning, because the instant pesto mix is really delicious! Way more delicious than the actual tuna pesto I have tasted! Super! It doesn’t taste commercialized at all, and really sumptuous! Of course, being the home made chef scientist wanna- be, I didn’t follow the recipe included on the seasoning mix, and tweaked it a bit.

What you need:
1 pack of McCormick Pesto
1 can of tuna lite
1 cup of nestle Cream
¼ noodles, or whatever you want to use. (I used macaroni) hehe
1 ½ tablespoon of olive oil
1 cup of water
Grated Parmesan Cheese

What you need to do:
♥ Cook the pasta. Set aside.
♥ On a sauce pan, put the oil, water and pesto mix. Let it boil. If its too salty, you may add more water.
Add the cream.
♥ Let it simmer for 5 more minutes
♥ Add the tuna.
♥ Top the sauce with the cooked pasta. Add the Parmesan cheese
♥ Serve and eat! 


  1. Hi sis, where did you buy your Colonna Grated Parmesan Cheese? Can I buy it in SM or Ayala supermarkets? Thanks! :)

    1. hi sis, dala sya ng father ko from US. not so sure kung may colonna talaga sa supermarkets. baka sa S&R meron. or you can check din siguro rustans baka meron. ibang brand kasi ng parmesan cheese ang nakikita ko sa sm eh.

    2. Thanks for the info sis. Check ko sa Rustans or S&R. :)
