A simple classic, this easy tuna pasta bake uses easy to source and storecupboard ingredients, is quick to throw together and will be a hit with the whole family!


I use Primula cheese as the base- I always have this in the fridge as it’s my go-to ingredient for easy pasta dishes, lasagne and marmite macaroni! Once you squeeze this onto the hot, cooked pasta, it melts in easily as you stir it.

I have just used 1 tin of tuna in this recipe, partly because I am trying to be frugal and last my supplies of food at the moment, and partly because it is enough to still be totally tasty! If you want to add 2 then go ahead!

In terms of the pasta you can use any type you fancy, I opted for wholewheat to add a little extra fibre to the meal, but you can use white pasta if you prefer.
