Laura’s Italian Tuna Pasta Bake Recipe

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

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!


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

• 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

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!
