Recipe for family meals :

Tuna and Mushroom Pasta

This recipes comes from Dancer and Graphic artist Martin James. Martin, who originally comes from New Zealand, is now living with his wife and children in Copenhagen as he is currently principal Dancer with The Royal Danish Ballet. You will be able to find out more about Martin when his Biography page is published.

Being so gifted it seems unfair that Martin should also be talented in the kitchen as well but he has agreed to share some of his recipes with us which is great news.


450g (16oz) can tuna
1 large onion
90g (3oz) butter
90g (3oz) button mushrooms
300ml carton cream
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon chopped parsley

  • Melt butter in pan, add peeled and finely chopped onion and drained tuna to pan, stir over medium heat until onion is just tender.
  • Chop mushrooms in half, add to pan, toss lightly.
  • Stir in cream, tomato paste, season with salt and pepper.
  • Bring sauce to boil, remove from heat immediately, stir in chopped parsley.

This is delicious served with a salad with lots of lettuce and a simple dressing, also some fresh Italian or French bread for mopping up any sauce. A nice chianti would be good as well.

Serves 4
