Category: Pasta


  • Your favourite pasta (100g per person)
  • Tuna (half a tin per person)
  • Grated cheddar (30g per person)
  • Grated parmesan (20g per person)
  • Mayonnaise (2 tablespoons per person)
  • Ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Sweetcorn (a tablespoon per person, optional)
  • Green pepper, finely chopped (a quarter of a pepper per person, optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Boil a saucepan of water on the hob and add a pinch of salt.
  3. Add your pasta and boil it for 8-12 minutes. The longer you boil it, the softer it will be.
  4. Drain the tuna and tip it out into the mixing bowl.
  5. Add the mayonnaise, salt and black pepper to the bowl, along with the sweetcorn and green pepper if you’re using them.
  6. Drain the pasta using the colander and add it to the bowl.
  7. Begin to stir the mixture together, making sure it’s well combined. As you stir, sprinkle in the cheddar a little at a time.
  8. Spoon the mixture into the baking dish.
  9. Sprinkle the parmesan evenly over the top. This will create a delicious crust.
  10. Place the dish into the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the top of the bake turns brown.
  11. Remove from the oven, serve and enjoy!
