Ingredients

  • 2 x packs ready-cooked pasta (we used Dolmio Express), or 440g leftover cooked penne (about 200g dried)
  • 100g can tuna in oil
  • 400g can cannellini bean , (borlotti or butterbeans are also good)
  • 1⁄2 red onion , finely chopped
  • zest and juice 1 lemon
  • large handful parsley

Method

  • STEP 1

    Microwave the cooked penne according to pack instructions. Tip into a bowl. Mix through the remaining ingredients (the warm pasta will really soak up the flavours). If using chilled leftover pasta, simply mix everything together – it will still taste great. Can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.
