Tuna pasta is one of the dishes that divides the society, although not as much as the argument menemen with onion and without onion. While some of the people say pasta with tuna fish is not a good idea, some are addicted to tuna pasta. I am not in either group, but I am married to one who is within one of these groups.
My husband is a tuna pasta freak. For the dinners we eat pasta, we usually cook the pasta and make the sauces separately, he eats tuna fish. Since I eat pasta with yogurt like a regular Turk, I either make pasta with peas or with tomato paste sauce. I also respect his tuna pasta. By the way, the reason why I don’t eat tuna pasta is not that tuna and pasta have come together. I am not a fan of tuna, therefore, dishes with tuna fish are not my first choice. If only the tuna salad was made well, it makes me say tuna is not a bad thing actually, I should eat it more often.
I generally do not share the recipes I don’t eat myself. Actually, if I share it, it won’t be my recipe. I would take someone else’s recipe and pass it on, and it would be pointless to share a recipe that does not have my own experience, knowledge or taste. But tuna pasta is not a recipe that I am that far away or have no idea about. So one day I decided to to prepare a what if I loved tuna pasta. I think it was very nice. If I loved tuna fish, I would often prepare this pasta.
