Chili Tuna Pasta And Oven Roasted Brussel Sprout


I bought some brussel sprouts yesterday to make the oven roasted brussel sprout that Jo made at her blog but I cant just have that for dinner, can I? So I walked back and forth opening the fridge, freezer and all the kitchen cabinets thinking what else should I make. Then I saw a can of the Bumble Bee Spicy Thai Chili Tuna and decided to make my favourite pasta that I used to order everytime I go to the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf outlet in Malaysia, Chili Tuna Pasta.


You can also check out my other recipe using Chili Tuna, Roti Pratha with Egg and Spicy Thai Chili Tuna.
Chili Tuna Pasta
Serves 1-2

1 can 5oz Bumble Bee Spicy Thai Chili Tuna
1 tomato, cubed
2-3 thai chili, sliced (optional, only if you like it hot)
2 tbsp olive oil
Cooked spaghetti or pasta of your choice

In a pan, heat olive oil on medium heat and add everything in. Stir occasionally. Serve on cooked spaghetti.


Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Serves 1

8 Brussels sprouts, cleaned and halves lengthwise
Olive oil
Salt
Fresh ground black pepper

Pre-heat oven 400F

1. Lay out the brussel sprouts on a baking pan in a single layer.

2. Sprinkle some olive oil, salt and black pepper.

3. Baked for 30-40 min, depending on the amount of brussel sprouts that you use.

4. Serves immediately as they taste better hot. Crunchy and yummylicious good.

Nic, alamak! Another one saying my food post make them sad! i got them from the regular supermarket. Its bumble bee brand. I had no problem finding them either here or when we were in PA.

Farina, I check the supermarket here but I can't find the spicy tuna lah. All they have are those in oil and water. By the way beautiful pictures. Now you are making me hungry :)

Mama, this one looks great and taste great too. ;) Selamat Hari Raya to you and family too.

Andrea, welcome and thank you. Try this combination and you'l be asking for more. ;)

Wiffy, thank you. I guess its pretty hard to find brussel sprout in Spore or Msia ya?

Awa, brussel sprout tu a type of veggie. kecik2 aje. cuba cari kat bangsar shopping complex ke?

Lubna, thanks. I will go check it out soon.

Daphne, aahh brussel sprout hater. lol. Yes, you can have the pasta tho. ;)

tigerfish said...

I have a AYAM brand chili tuna...I am going to try that....your style, with pasta! :D

`nic's noodle` said...

Farina! I finally found the tuna - but soooo mahal!! (to me anyway) - $2.49 per can. Nonsense lah :)

If I wasn't so worried about U.S. customs confiscating things, I'd ask my Mum to bring a bunch of the ayam brand ones when she flies here next week. :(

Oh well :) The price you sometimes have to pay for a taste of home right :) ?

Salt N Turmeric said...

Tigerfish, yes pls do. You'l love it. Add more thai cili. ;)

Nicole, i think thts how much it costs. What to do? Sometimes we just gotta close 1 eye or else kempunan lah jawabnya.

skinnymum said...
