Fusilli Pasta with Tuna and Sweet Corn

This is another quick lunch. It is fast, easy and simple.

Corn and tuna is a great combination. My kids loves it!! 

Fusilli Pasta with Tuna,  Sweetcorn 
Recipe source: adapted from Baby Sumo

80g fusilli pasta ( i used mixed spinanch and carrot fusilli )
1/3 can tuna (i used can tuna chunk in olive oil)
1 shallot, finely chopped
6 cherry tomatoes, halved (i did not add this)
A handful sweetcorn (you can use canned or frozen)
2 quail's egg ( i did not add this)
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbsp EVOO (i used olive oil from can tuna)

( i added 1 tbsp mayonnaise and 1/4 tsp condensed milk)

To do:
1. Boil quail's egg for 4-5 minutes in simmering water, according to your preference. Then transfer to iced water,  the cold water sets the membrane so the egg can be easily peeled. Halve the egg. (Note: If making for packed lunch, it would be better to hard boil the quail's egg)

(i did not  add quail's egg)

2.  Cook pasta according to pack instructions in some salted water with a few drops of olive oil. Drain and run under cold water to stop pasta from cooking further.

3. Place pasta in a large bowl, and drizzle with 2 tbsp EVOO. Add shallot, tuna, sweetcorn and toss well. Season with salt and pepper. (i mixed tuna with mayonnaise)

4. This can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge. Suitable as pack lunches.
