  1. Make sure you stir the pasta every 2 minutes until pasta is cooked. 
  1. As the pasta is cooking cut the tomato in half, remove the pulp, dice and set aside  
  1. In a food processor put in the onions, parsley, olives, and capers and only give it a couple of pulses until they are very small in size. (This can be done by hand as well)  
  1. In a separate large bowl break the drained tuna into pieces and add in the rest of the ingredients except the cheeses and mix 
  1. Once pasta is done cooking, drain any excess water, add the grated cheeses, and mix in the tuna mixture.  
  1. Serve warm or cold both are delicious

Eurocrem Cheesecake


Two 8oz blocks of cream cheese

Three Eggs

One cup of sugar

Two cups of sour cream

One tablespoon vanilla extract

One to Two Cups of Eurocrem (depending on how chocolatey you want this)


One and ½ cups of graham cracker crumbs

Five tablespoons of melted unsalted butter

½ cup of sugar

 -       Preheat oven to 325* degrees F.

-       Melt your butter in the microwave and mix it with the graham cracker crumbs. The crumbs can easily be made by crushing some graham crackers or putting the crackers in a food processor. Add the sugar in the mixture and then press this mixture down into the baking pan or pans you desire to use.

-       Soften the cream cheese in microwave if needed, but I recommend leaving it out at room temperature until soft before trying this recipe. Beat the cream cheese with stand mixer or hand mixer until smooth and then slowly add in the eggs one at a time. You can then add the sugar, sour cream and vanilla extract. Beat until this is very smooth, no lumps in the mixture from the cream cheese or sour cream! Then add in the Eurocrem as desired for sweetness and flavor!

-       Pour the cream cheese mixture into the pan or pans with the crust. You can bake this as is or put it in a water bath for a smoother finish on top (no cracks on the cheesecake). Either way is fine. Bake it for 45 minutes or up to one hour as needed. Let the cheesecake cool for 45 minutes and then chill it in the refrigerator for a minimum of four hours.

-       After this, you can top the cheesecake as you would like. I like to add a chocolate candy melt drizzle, Kinder Bueno pieces, and strawberries to mine. You can also it eat just as is if you would like. Enjoy!
