Grilled Tuna, Veggie and Red Pepper Pesto Wrap

17 May


Lunch has never been my favorite meal, probably because sometimes I end up eating the same thing day in and day out for about a month straight and I always end up being bored out of my mind and dreading having to eat my plain old sandwiches. I am quite restricted because of school but when that is a whole other topic! When I’m eating lunch at home, I have free range to make what I fancy and it can even be hot and not soggy from sitting in my lunchbox all day, the privilege!


So the other day I was really craving something hot but still a summery dish because it was actually sunny out for once, I couldn’t believe it. So I pulled out the wrap and let my senses guide me as to what I would put on it and it ended up so yummy. I hadn’t intended to share it with you guys but I just couldn’t keep this to myself. Quick and delicious, what more could I ask for? 🙂
