- Drain the peas pasta!.
- Add in the tuna, mayo, pesto, kale and plenty of cheese. I usually use 1 can of tuna, a large handful, or a couple, of kale (I have small hands and kale shrinks when cooked), plenty of pepper and herbs, a dash of salt and lots of cheese 🙂 I have the queezy mayo bottles and add plenty – hold down for about 5 seconds. You can use all f these ingredients to taste. You can also add some chili flakes or olives too!!.
