Creamy Tuna & Cherry Tomatoes Veggie Pasta

Veggie pasta used in this recipe is from Foodies with Love, a homegrown healthy homemade dried veggie pasta brand.

(Serves 2 kids under 5) 

1/2 cup shell veggie pasta by Foodies with Love
1/2 cup spiral veggie pasta by Foodies with Love
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 can tuna flakes in extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup cherry tomatoes
220g (half a bottle) Classic Marinara Sauce by Foodies with Love
Pasta water (from cooking the veggie pasta)
1 tablespoon cream cheese

How to: 

1. Boil water in a pot and pour in both types of veggie pasta. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Drain the pasta; remember to keep aside a bowl of the pasta water.

2. Drain the oil from the tuna can into a frying pan and heat it up over medium-high heat. Add in chopped onion and garlic, then stir fry until fragrant. Add in tuna flakes and stir for a few more minutes.

3. Add in cherry tomatoes, Classic Marinara Sauce, some pasta water, and drained pasta. Mix all ingredients until well combined.

4. Finally, stir in cream cheese and simmer until sauce thickens to desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

Note: I don't add extra salt and pepper because this meal is for my kids (20-month old baby and 5-year old boy).

5. Serve!
