Creamy Tuna Pesto Pasta

I've been cooking new recipes since we moved into our house, and I'm lovin' it!!  Haven't posted them yet because blogspot isn't working very well on my PC..  Sad..  Oh, anyway, I'm gonna try again..
I cooked Creamy Tuna Pesto Pasta for meryenda yesterday and the kids loved it, especially my "picky eater" Andi..  Happiness for a mother!♥
I haven't tried making my own pesto, so I bought easy to make/ready made pesto.

500g Linguine Pasta (cook as directed)

1 pack McCormick Pesto Perfect Pasta Sauce mix
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup water

250 ml Nestle All-Purpose Cream
1 small can of mushrooms
2 cans century tuna flakes in brine (drained)
grated Parmesan
salt and pepper
Make the pesto, (for the McCormick Pesto) in a saucepan, combine Pesto sauce mix, water and oil.  Cook over medium heat until warmed.  Add the all-purpose cream, drained tuna and mushrooms.  Season with salt and pepper.  Toss in cooked pasta, transfer to a serving dish and top with grated Parmesan.
This is so easy to make and the kids loved it 'cause it has all their favorites on it!  I kinda' work around their favorite food so I know they'll pretty much like it.
my happy boy!
This boy is so easy to please when it comes to food, he'll eat almost anything!  Ang galing pa mambola just like his dad! :)
