Creamy Pesto Tuna Pasta

When I was making my menu for this week I just didn't have any inspiration for Friday so decided well just make it left-over day. In that way I'll save some money by just using the products that I have left and maybe it will lead to unexpected new combinations! And yes, it was delicious! Had some soy cream and red pesto in the refrigerator and a little bit zucchini and mushrooms and some tuna from my lunch salad. So decided to make a pasta with it. Perfect before a night of drinking because it's a party in the netherlands! Kingsday is tomorrow and of course we start with Kings Night ;)
