Tuna Pasta Bake

Morning everyone:-) I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to try a No Count Tuna Pasta Bake recipe but I am so glad I did.  This was absolutely delicious!  It is free on No Count and 7 points per portion if following WW Flex (as long as you substitute the olive oil for a low calorie cooking spray).

 

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • an onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • two 400g tins chopped tomatoes with basil
  • a tsp dried oregano
  • 280g dried wholemeal pasta
  • two tins of tuna in brine
  • 16 olives, halved (4 per person are free)
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • a small tin of sweetcorn
  • 100g Eatlean Protein cheese (26g per person is free)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Method:

  1. Preheat to oven to 180C.
  2. Cook the pasta in boiling water.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan. Add the garlic and onion before cooking for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the tinned tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, sweetcorn, olives and oregano, and season to taste. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Drain the pasta and add to the sauce, stirring it in.
  6. Pour into an ovenproof dish and gently stir in the tuna.
  7. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and bake for about 20 minutes.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

  1. I’m making this tonight for us, probably make a big batch and take some to work tomorrow for lunch, would you half the portion size for lunch Helen? I generally don’t have a big lunch anyway and it’s my first proper week back so I don’t want to over eat which is a big problem for me xx

    1. Yes Kath, I’d halve the portion size for lunch. 👍🏻💕 Good idea to make a batch – enjoy! 😋😋💕 Helen xxxxx

      1. Thank you Helen, my OH is a huge six feet five man and will probably eat a massive amount so I always make extra, I can’t wait to try it 😍😍💃🏻
