  1. Cook the spaghetti in a pot of boiling salted water according to the package directions. In the last 2 minutes of cooking, add the green beans. When done, remove from heat and drain.

  2. In a 10-inch saute pan, warm the olive oil, then add the cooked and drained spaghetti and green beans. Mix to coat with the oil, then add the dried minced onion, salt, pepper, and Parmesan.

  3. Open and drain a can of tuna, adding it to the spaghetti and green bean mixture. Stir to incorporate ingredients. Cook on medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Serve while warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

Recipe Notes

I used the pot-ready thin spaghetti and extra-fine frozen green beans. Just warm through when you add the tuna. The beans and spaghetti are already cooked. Cold leftovers made a delicious salad for lunch.

    • I really loved it, Rona. I wanted something without a sauce since I’m doing WW. When I tossed together the ingredients, I was amazed at how tasty it was. I could have eaten the whole amount, but saved some for lunch the next day and it was just as good, if not better. I’ve made it several times now, even taking out the olive oil, using less pasta and more beans. It’s good every time.
