Spicy Tuna Linguine

Inspired by a meal I love making at home, it’s easy and doable on the trail using the one pot method. It’s also a great boondocking meal in an RV or trailer.

Spicy Tuna Linguine

Pack in a sandwich bag:
  • 8-ounces linguine pasta
  • Good pinch of sea salt

In a snack size zip top bag:

  • ½ tsp granulated garlic
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano

Also take:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (2 packets)
  • 3-ounce albacore tuna pouch

In a snack size ip top bag:

  • 2 Tbsp dry bread crumbs, plain or Italian
  • 2 Tbsp shelf stable parmesan cheese

In camp:

Add the oil to the snack bag with the seasoning, seal the bag and gently massage the bag to combine. Let sit while you prepare the pasta.

Bring 4 cups water to a boil, add in the pasta and cook for time on package, around 9-10 minutes. Reserve a about 2/3 cups of the pasta water, drain off the rest.

Toss the pasta with the tuna and flavored oil, toss again with the breadcrumb mixture. Add reserved water as needed to coat the pasta.

You can do this in the pot, or for more flavor, heat the pan up over a very low flame and toss the pasta to infuse the flavor more.

Instead of heating up the oil and spices at the end in the pot we let them infuse while the pasta cooked. To save a dirty pot, by all means after cooking the pasta, you can toss everything together in a new gallon size freezer bag. It is better I feel prepped in a hot pan.
We added in bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese at the end give the pasta a great coating and ‘finish’ the meal.
