1 lb. maruzze (shell) pasta
½ cup or more (optional) olive oil
1 19-oz. can cannellini beans
Salt and pepper
1 10-oz. package frozen artichoke hearts*
Juice of one lemon
1 cup pitted black olives
6 scallions, thinly sliced
1 6-oz. jar pickled red peppers, drained and julienne
2 6½-oz. cans solid white tuna packed in olive oil
Any type of pasta may be used instead of maruzze. The main components of this recipe are any pasta and white beans. For variety, the tuna can be replaced with salmon or even prosciutto.
Canned artichokes may be substituted.
Be sure to keep these ingredients in your pantry, as this is a great off-the-shelf meal in a bowl. It can be put together quickly for unexpected guests. It can also be made up ahead of time and refrigerated, but it is best served at room temperature.
