Tuna Tomato Pasta with Mushrooms and Mustard Green

Pasta with tomato sauce with various mushrooms and mustard green

As I wanted to bring out the flavor of the tuna, I added the oil from the tuna can as well. To keep the dish from becoming too oily, I made sure to not add too much olive oil. I had a lot of mizuna left over after making the dish, so I decided to add it to the pasta as well. The additional mizuna added some crunchiness, which made for an unusual pasta dish, but I quite enjoyed it.
