3 Affordable Tuna Recipes You Can Make in Less Than 20 Minutes

Not everybody has the time to prepare elaborate meals. Sometimes it’s easier (and more tempting) to order in instead. But if you want to make sure you’re eating right, it’s still best to prepare your own meals—just follow simple recipes with easy-to-find ingredients.

You can always rely on pantry staples like San Marino Corned Tuna. It has less oil and lots of tuna than the usual tuna flakes in oil. It’s also rich in Omega-3, which is good for the heart.

Canned tuna is one of the most versatile ingredients you can find in your pantry. Combined with pantry staples like eggs, butter, and bread, you’ve got yourself a filling (and inexpensive) meal in just a few minutes.

It also goes well with other ingredients like tomato sauce, pasta, cream, cheese, and even corn.
