Creamy Tuna Pesto Pasta

I'm taking baby steps as far as honing my cooking skills is concerned. For now, I think it's safer to start with pasta dishes as they are the easier ones to cook. So for dinner, I made Creamy Tuna Pesto Pasta. It's really easy to cook. All I had to do was mix all the ingredients in the pan.

As you can see in the photo, I used the following ingredients:

1. Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto Pasta Sauce
2. Nestle All Purpose Cream
3. A can of sliced mushrooms
4. Century tuna in vegetable oil
5. Grated cheese
6. Penne pasta - 450 grams (not in photo)
7. Chopped onions and garlic (not in photo)

So here's how I made my version of the Creamy Tuna Pesto Pasta.

1. Cook pasta in boiling water. Remember to add a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of oil into the water before boiling it. Refer to the pasta's packaging for the cooking time.

2. Drain water and set pasta aside.

3. Put two tablespoons of oil in a pan, then saute the chopped onions and garlic. Don't let the garlic turn brown and crispy.

4. Add the tuna and mushroom. Cook for about a minute or two.

5. Pour the all purpose cream, followed by the cheesy pesto sauce. Bring to boil.

6. Add the grated cheese; season with Maggi Magic Sarap. Wait until cheese has melted.

7. Mix pasta with the sauce.

8. Serve while hot :)

There you go. I had two servings of this Creamy Tuna Pesto Pasta for dinner. My mama seemed to enjoy it as well. Yehey!

I know that 2014 is a good time to start anew, move on, and all that, but i will always miss 2013 and even 2012 for that matter. Well, almost two years of good times and hoping for a happy ending is not something you can just turn your back to. Regardless of what people said, say, will say ... everything in that two years was real and worth cherishing.

Ngayong 2014, wala na akong mayayaya kumain ng kebab after gym. Wala ng mag-aalaga sakin when I've drank too much. Wala ng susundo at maghahatid sa akin sa akin sa bahay. Wala na akong maririnig na maingay na makina ng kotse at wala na akong masasakyang race car. Wala ng mang-aalaska sa ilong ko. Wala ng warm hugs and passionate kisses. Wala na akong gym buddy at WeChat buddy. Wala na akong number fan at supporter sa lahat ng bagay na pasukin ko. Wala na akong confidante and adviser. Wala na akong itetext ng good night at i love you bago matulog. Wala ng partner in kalokohan. Wala ng bestfriend na makikinig sa lahat ng rant ko sa mundo. Wala ng mekanikong susubukang ayusin ang lahat para lang sumaya ako.

Pero kahit wala na sya, I wish him well. I hope he's happy because that will make me happy.
