Bento No. 9 Tuna on Wholewheat Rotini Pasta

This bento is easy to make, not to mention scrumptiously healthy! You can make this in under 30 minutes, and what's more, everything you need is in your cupboard!

Tuna on Wholewheat Rotini Pasta Recipe


  • Half a box of Wholewheat Rotini Pasta (you may use other pasta, not necessarily wholewheat)
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, pounded
  • A can of flaked tuna, drained
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced


  1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions
  2. Oil a heated pan. You may use the oil in the canned tuna if you use the flakes in oil version. I used olive oil. Do take note that the oil will be the base of your pasta sauce, so make sure you use enough oil, and that the oil is a healthy oil. Once the oil is hot enough, saute garlic until lightly browned
  3. Add the tuna flakes. Sautee until the tuna is well heated
  4. Add in the onion and tomatoes. Sautee until well heated, and then simmer for a few minutes
  5. Mix the pasta sauce and pasta
  6. Pack in your bento box. Make sure that it is cooled before you refrigerate
