Tuna Pasta Cheesy Bake Ingredients (Serves 4)

250g pasta

200g drained canned tuna

100g grated cheese

Optional extra toppings ideas, along with the cheese: 1 individual-sized bag of crisps or crispy onion bits

Tuna Pasta Cheesy Bake Recipe

– Pop the pasta into a saucepan with hot water and simmer until cooked (usually around 10 minutes)

– When the pasta is cooked, drain it in a colander and leave it in there whilst you put your saucepan back to work.

– Pour your sauce into the saucepan and simmer on a low heat. Add in your sweetcorn and drained tuna and stir it all together..

– Now grab that drained pasta and add it to the saucepan and mix everything together for a couple of minutes.

– Pour it all into an over-proof dish and spread it out evenly.

– Sprinkle your grated cheese and any extra toppings over the top and then place it all under the grill for a few minutes. You’ll know when it’s ready as the cheese will all be golden brown and it’ll smell so good!

Now go eat! We serve ours with whatever we fancy that evening, so it might be a salad, crusty bread, chips, vegetables, whatever you have in the cupboard.
