Ingredients

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

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the grill. Stir the soft cheese into the tomato sauce until melted, then mix with the pasta, broccoli and drained tuna, along with a little of the reserved cooking water if the sauce looks a bit thick. Season with salt and pepper.

  • STEP 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.
