Number of Servings: 4


    1 Large Onion, chopped roughly
    1 Leek, trimmed and sliced
    1 Can of Tuna in Sunflower/light oil
    1 x400g Tin of Plum tomatoes, chopped
    1 tbsp dried Oregano
    1/4 tsp sugar
    50g Tomato Puree
    2 cups sliced mushrooms
    2 cups frozen peas and carrots
    200g Pasta
    100g Grated Cheddar Cheese (optional)


Put the peas and carrots in a large saucepan and fill pan with boiling water. Bring pan back to boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the pasta and cook for 1/2 the time the packet says.

Meanwhile, fry the onions in a little of the tuna oil until clear, add the leeks and fry until soft, add the mushrooms and soften gently. Add the drained tuna and fry for a minute or two.

Add the Tomatoes and herbs and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2 minutes then add the tomato puree (paste) and the sugar.

Drain the pasta and veg well. Mix together with the tuna/tomato mix until thoroughly combined.

Pop the whole lot into a casserole/oven proof dish and sprinkle the top with cheese (if using). Pop in a hot oven (200C/ gas mark 7) for 20 minutes until the cheese has melted and gone stringy and the whole thing is hot through.

This makes 4 hearty portions or eight lunch portions. Leave the cheese off to decrease the calories (but it's much nicer with).

    The only changes I made was with the tomatoes, I don't usually use plum tomatoes and artichokes instead of leeks (none on hand). I was very pleased with the results. Thanks! - 5/27/19
