I have always loved tuna but I tend to like it with a lot of mayonnaise and on a sandwich. I was happy to be sent a box of Bumble Bee Tuna products as a result of my participation on the Bumble Bee Bee Squad. Along with the box of tuna products came several recipes. We recently had a conference call with Bumble Bee Foods and I was happy to learn about these other uses for tuna that aren't sandwiches or tuna noodle casserole.
The first recipe card I received is for Pizza with Prosciutto. I decided not to make this since I am not a prosciutto fan. I decided to make the Mediterranean-Style Rigatoni Pasta. It was so easy to open the can of tuna instead of worrying about defrosting another protein as I normally would have. The pasta was very flavorful with vegetables (peppers, onions, tomatoes), olives and the tuna. I added more than a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes though since I like it spicy!
Bumble Bee has many more recipes for their products available on their website. Currently, if you sign up for My Cookbook on BumbleBee.com (it's FREE) you'll be given access to a large library of searchable recipes as well as high-value coupons.
Bumble Bee has other products besides tuna, such as clams, shrimp, and salmon. My next recipe will use the can of salmon I was sent. I'm anxious to try the chile lime salmon tacos or the wasabi salmon and asian slaw - both sound yummy!
I also wanted to bring your attention to Bumble Bee's commitment to sustainability. This is a brand you can feel good about giving to your family!
I received this valuable information from my participation on Bumble Bee's Bee Squad. I received a box of free products from them a month ago but received no additional compensation for this post or my participation on the Bee Squad.
