Tuna and Mushroom Ragout

I got another great cookbook geared toward meals that serve only 2. It is Cooking for Two (More Recipes) This quick and inexpensive meal can be whipped up in no time with so many different variations. If you don't like mushrooms, substitute in zucchini or green beans. The recipe is just your guide!

Tuna and Mushroom Ragout from Cooking for Two

Tuna and Mushroom Ragout
You will need some Worcestershire sauce, tuna, flour, tomatoes, mushrooms, rice, onion, basil, garlic and some parmesan cheese. The recipe also called for parsley, but I forgot to grab it and everything was still a-ok.

Put your water on to boil for the rice. If you are making real rice, just follow the instructions on your rice package. I am making short cut boil in bag rice.

chopped onion in Pyrex
Chop your onion.

chopped garlic
Chop your garlic.

That is all the prep you need to do besides opening up your cans or tuna pouch and making sure you have a tablespoon handy for your flour.

onions in
Get the oil in the pan and then drop in the onions. Let these cook for just a couple of minutes.

mushrooms and garlic in
Add in the onions and garlic and let those cook for about 3 minutes.

flour in
Stir in the flour and stir it around for a minute.

tomatoes in
Add the tomatoes and give it a stir. Look at that steam and imagine how good it is smelling!

tomatoes and tuna in
Add in the tuna and the Worcestershire and give it another stir. Let it simmer for about 3 more minutes and then season it with salt and pepper.

Get your rice on a plate and simply spoon some of the ragout over the top. Add some parmesan cheese if you would like and you are ready to eat.

Tuna and Mushroom Ragout
Tasty, quick and inexpensive!

I am hoping all of you on the east coast are safe this weekend!!
