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


  • 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)


  • 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. 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.
