As a Tavern Direct Super Insider, I get to try a new product each month. This month, I was challenged to use the Tavern on the Green Garlic with Rosemary Oil. Since I adore pasta in all forms, I decided to give this recipe a try.

Pasta Shells with Tuna, Peas and Lemon

4 tablespoons Tavern on the Green Garlic with Rosemary Oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups frozen baby peas
1/4 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon salt
1 pound dried pasta shells (choose a gluten free variety)
2 cans (6 ounces each) water-packed tuna, drained
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

1. Set a covered large pot of water over high heat.

2. Warm 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat in a medium pan. Add the onion and peas. Stir. Cover and cook about 3 minutes, or until the peas are thawed. Remove from the heat and set aside.

3. When the water boils, add 1 tablespoon salt and the pasta. Stir. Cover and return to the boil. Uncover and boil, stirring occasionally, about 12 minutes, or until al dente. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Drain the pasta and return to the pot. Add the tuna, onion, and peas, pepper, lemon zest, and 2 tablespoons oil. Toss. Add just enough reserved water to moisten.

I love the subtle taste of the Garlic with Rosemary Oil from Tavern Direct.  This is definitely much more flavorful than plain olive oil.  Tavern Direct is a philanthropic venture founded with a commitment to supporting the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s® (NCMEC) efforts to provide education about how to keep every child safer.  When you buy on TavernDirect.com, they donate 50 cents for every product you buy. Help them help-buy Tavern Direct products and share their story with your friends.

I was certain that neither child would like this since it has both peas and warm tuna fish – both of which are generally disliked in my house.  To my surprise they both had seconds!
