Weeknights in our house can be so incredibly busy, especially this time of year. My son has had so many activities with school not that the school year is winding down. It makes dinner time even more rushed.

I try to make dinners on super busy nights as easy as possible. And one of the kid’s favorite dinners is anything related to pasta. Fortunately I know lots of super quick and easy pasta recipes that take no time at all to prepare and are still filled with delicious, nutritious vegetables.

This tuna pasta primavera is one of my favorites because it contains lots of colorful vegetables and easy, delicious tuna. It’s a special treat for the whole family when I incorporate tuna in a fun pasta dinner like this.

For this recipe I use fresh spinach and broccoli along with frozen and defrosted peas and grape tomatoes. You can use any type of pasta, but my kids really love this cute bow-tie pasta. It’s easy for little hands to pick up.

For the tuna I used Wild Selections Tuna for this recipe. It’s the only tuna brand that truly cares and deeply acts on sustainability. Wild Selections sources it’s seafood only from ocean areas that have been certified  to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Standard – the world’s leading certification program for wild-caught, sustainable seafood for the past 20 years. This special assessment and important certification of oceans areas by MSC ensures that fish stocks are healthy, well managed and plentiful.

What I really love about Wild Selections is that each product they make is traceable to the ocean where it was caught. Isn’t that amazing! Wild Selections also uses simple ingredients and are non-GMO Project Verified.

Wild Selections even donates 13 cents from the sale of each can to support World Wildlife Fund’s efforts to protect marine life and expand sustainable fishing practices. That’s up to $1 million by the end of this year!  This is all about paying forward so they can help take care of our oceans for generations to come.

You can purchase Wild Selections Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water or Wild Selections Solid White Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil at a store near you, or on Amazon.com.
