Laura’s Italian Tuna Pasta Bake Recipe

A taste of Italy but under a fiver – perfecto! University of Leicester student Laura cooked this for her hungry housemates (who loved her for it!) in this video. Since it went down so well, here’s the recipe so you can give it a go and feed your housemates too!

ITALIAN TUNA PASTA BAKE

Serves: 4-6
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 35 mins

Ingredients:
• 300g dried penne pasta
• 2 cans of ratatouille
• 2 x 185g cans of tuna in spring water
• 125g Italian light mozzarella ball, sliced
• Handful of fresh basil leaves
• Herbs, salt and pepper

Method:
1) Preheat oven to 190C. Cook the dried pasta as the packet instructions say (usually cook in a pan of boiling water for 12-15 mins). Drain and pour into a large ovenproof dish.
2) Spoon over half the ratatouille and tuna and mix thoroughly with the cooked pasta. Add the remaining ratatouille and tuna and stir in gently. Arrange the mozzarella slices on top.
3) Bake in the oven for 25 mins until bubbling and the cheese is golden.
4) Garnish with the basil leaves and serve immediately – dish it out!
