My granddaughter loved this recipe. It makes a super lunch served with salad or a light supper on its own.

Ingredients

  • 2 x 185g cans tuna in olive oil, drained well, 1 tbsp oil reserved
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes with garlic and herbs
  • 350g/120oz dried pasta shapes
  • 300g/11oz broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 200g/7oz pack light soft cheese
  • 100g/4oz cheddar, finely grated
  • 25g/1oz breadcrumbs
  • salad, to serve (optional)

Method

    1. Heat the reserved oil from the tuna in a very large saucepan. Tip in the tomatoes, plus 200ml water and simmer while you cook the pasta, following pack instructions. Add the broccoli for the final 3 mins, then drain, reserving some of the cooking water.
    2. Heat the grill. Stir the soft cheese into the tomato sauce until melted, then mix with the pasta, broccoli and drained tuna. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. Tip into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle on the cheddar and crumbs. Grill, not too close to the heat, for about 4-6 mins until golden and bubbling. Serve with a big side salad, if you like.
