Cheesy tomato and tuna pasta for the little one

In a recent shopping trip to the supermarket, I discovered salt-free canned spring water tuna. I didn’t even know they sell that at NTUC finest! What a lovely discovery as that means that I can cook tuna pasta for my little one. I made extra pasta sauce and cooked some spaghetti so that the adults could have some too. The little one had hers with mini pasta bows. When she saw her bowl of pasta, her eyes lit up and she went, “WOW!” That was worth all the effort.
