A different twist on a Tuna Casserole

You can't go wrong with crispy-fried bacon and butter. Oh come on, you could use Smart Balance and Turkey bacon if you wanted to...this has tuna (good for you)...clams (also good for you)...garlic (good for your heart)...etc. Once you fry the bacon and boil the pasta you're minutes from dinner!

Mediterranean Pasta

1 lb. lean bacon
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 (7.5 oz.) cans chopped clams with liquid
1½ cups canned pitted and sliced black olives
½ cup butter
1 (12 oz.) pkg. noodles, cooked and drained
1 (7 oz.) can solid pack tuna, drained and chunked
¼ cup chopped parsley
Lemon wedges

Cut bacon into ½ inch pieces and sauté over low heat until crisp. Pour off all but ¼ cup drippings. Add garlic, clams, and olives, simmer for 5 minutes. Melt butter and pour into clam mixture. In a large bowl, place cooked noodles, clam mixture, tuna and parsley. Toss and serve with lemon wedges. (use linguini, vermicelli, etc.)

Hi Angel,
Just found the link to your website. FUN! I love to cook and always enjoy new recipes and ideas. I had a question about your tranquility retreat. Do you charge to do that, and if so, how much? I'm on the enrichment commitee in my ward and it sounds like a great idea for one of our meetings. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Angel - I wanted to thank you for featuring my Grandpa's recipe "Chuck Walker's Texas Chuck Roast" on GTU. I had no idea about the recipe and I'm so excited to make it! My mother is Chuck's daughter. He has actually passed away, but he was such a funny man. He liked tongue twisters and taught us some really funny ones. Thank you for passing on some of my family history that I didn't even know about! My Aunt sent a link to my Mom and she sent it on to me telling me that my Grandpa was "famous". Anyway, thank you!
