Tuna with Penne, Lemon, and Parsley

Prep time 20 mins
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
Tuna can be purchased in convenient 3- and 5- ounce, easy-to-open pouches as well as cans. Albacore tuna is more expensive, but we prefer its milder flavor. Any variety is fine as long as it's packed in water rather than oil.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cooked penne (about 8 ounces uncooked tube-shaped pasta)
  • 1 (12-ounce) can albacore tuna in water, drained and flaked
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
