Simple tuna pasta bake
This is about as easy as it gets - well without microwaving I suppose...
1 tin of tuna
half a carton of passata
dried pasta (enough to fill whatever dish you're going to use)
herbs of your choice
Heat oven to 200.
Cook the pasta, drain the water and set aside in the pan.
Grate the cheese - it's hard to put an amount to use, I tend to grate some then eat a bit of it, give some to whichever child is in the vicinity and then end up grating more at the end...
Pour the passata into the pan, drain your tin of tuna and then add that into the pan with the passata and the pasta.
Add whichever herbs you like - I added basil, rosemary and a bit of thyme. Give it a good mix and then pour into a baking dish.
Throw in a few cherry tomatoes - I have some homegrown ones in varying levels of ripeness so grabbed a few of these and dotted them about.
Sprinkle over the cheese (grate more if you don't get enough coverage).
Bake in the oven for around 20 mins, or until you smell the cheese starting to burn.
Serve with green beans and salad.
