Lemon-butter pasta

Kinda loosely inspired by this recipe

1 box pasta
~4 cups water
1 stick butter
1-2 tbsp minced garlic
1-2 tbsp parsley
Zest and juice from 1 lemon
2-3 cans tuna

Put pasta and water in a large skillet and cook covered for about 8 minutes
Add other ingredients. If the pasta starts to look dried out (because, say, you were distracted by your small children) add the water from one of the tuna cans. Otherwise drain before you add. 

Eat it all.

(This recipe was rated positively even by the 3-year-old who NEVER eats fish so it must be pretty good!)

I would be sorely tempted to add a bag of chopped, frozen spinach to this. (My husband disagrees with me that you don't really taste it. Perhaps I don't taste it because I tend to cover my food with red chili pepper flakes.)

I should do that next time. Weirdly, spinach is one of the few vegetables my greenery-averse toddler will eat.
