Bow-Tie Pasta with Tuna

A really fast stovetop meal of pasta, tuna and veggies in a creamy cheese sauce.

3 cups bow-tie pasta
2 tsp olive oil
1 red pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 can condensed mushroom soup
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/4 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 tbsp sundried tomato pesto
1 tbsp fresh basil leaves, minced
2 green onions, sliced
1 can flaked light tuna in water, drained

Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add red pepper and garlic; saute for 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook until sauce is bubbly and cheese has melted. Remove from heat and stir in pasta and tuna.

I couldn’t get enough of this stuff; I thought it was so good! Tony and Bennett really loved it too. Cole was another story. He refused to eat it, so after the boys’ bath-time when he said he was hungry I offered it to him again. He managed to swallow a few bites, then said ‘Mommy, can you please not make this again?’ Well, unfortunately for him I think I will be making this one again (sorry Cole).
