Tuna Pasta Recipe - Ingredients

(serves 4)

  • 1 x 150g tin of tuna (in water)
  • 1 x 500g pasta (fusilli, penne or pasta bows)
  • 1 x tin of sweet corn

Feel free to throw in any additional veg you have lurking in the fridge or in the freezer – I tend to throw in things like peas, broccoli or green beans to bulk it up and get extra veggies into the dish.

 

*Variation*

For another slight variation to the recipe you can also add a 240g can of tinned tomatoes (I often do this)
