Quick Tuna Pasta

This is a great quick meal after a busy day at work and the kids love it.



  • 1.

    Finely chop half an onion and 1 large clove of garlic, brown in a saucepan with a little bit of olive oil until the onion is cooked (clear in colour).

  • 2.

    Open a tin of peeled tomatos remove 4-5 tomatos only (not the juice) and add into the saucepan with the onion and garlic, break up the tomatos roughly in the saucepan with a wooden spoon.

  • 3.

    Add a little salt and peper, simmer for 5 minutes.

  • 4.

    Add to the sauce a large tin of tuna in olive oil (including the oil in the tin). Stir tuna into the sauce. Simmer for another few minutes.

  • 5.

    Boil the pasta cook according to the packets instructions, drain lightly and add the tomato/tuna sauce mix well with a wooden spoon and serve.


Remember not to add the juice in the tin of tomatos this will take too long to simmer down and it wont be quick tuna pasta
