This Tuna Pasta with Lemon and Capers is healthy, ridiculously simple and it only takes 15 minutes to throw together too. And for those that don’t like the thought of tuna (my husband didn’t), I provide some alternatives below.

Also, this recipe is a great one for those that are looking to cook for just 1 or 2 people – you just need to add less of the ingredients. It all comes down to taste, anyway.

Ingredient Notes For This Tuna Pasta with Lemon and Capers:

  • Meat – This recipe calls for tuna. However, if you don’t want to use tuna, a great alternative would be rotisserie chicken, shrimp or boiled/seasoned chicken.
  • Pasta – I love using fettucine for this because it really holds up to the other ingredients.
  • Capers – Don’t skip this ingredient. It adds the perfect briny bite and works so well with the fish and lemon juice.
  • Lemon – Be sure to add some fresh lemon juice here as well. It helps cut some of the richness of the fish and brings the dish together nicely.
