Family classic – tuna pasta bake in 25 mins!

Here is a nutritious, good value, scrumptious family meal.  I like to make a big dish of it to last for two dinners.  You could add other finely chopped veg such as brocolli or cabbage for extra goodness.  Serves 6.


500g pasta (I like macaroni as it’s a good size for toddlers)

1 red/white onion or bunch spring onions, finely chopped

2 tins sweetcorn

3 small tins tuna chunks

150g peas

250ml mayo

1 tsp dried mixed herbs or handful of fresh parsley, chopped

Large handful of breadcrumbs (I blend one slice of bread)

150g cheddar cheese

Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions, adding the peas a few minutes before it is done.  Meanwhile mix together the onion, sweetcorn, tuna, mayo and herbs then add to the cooked, drained pasta and peas.  Heat it all through and put the mixture in to a casserole dish.  Seperately mix together the breadcrumbs and cheese, put it on top of the pasta mix and grill until golden brown.
