Stuffed Tuna Shells

Fitness Expert

A great snack or appetizer to serve during parties and special occasions. Just be sure to buy water-packed tuna, not tuna packed in oil. Water-packed tuna has only 2 grams of fat per 4-ounce serving, whereas tuna packed in oil has 26 grams!

  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • ¼ cup plain nonfat yogurt

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Dash of paprika


  1. Cook pasta shells as directed on package.
