Oven baked pasta is a classic Italian Sunday lunch recipe, but it’s also a great idea for a midweek hearty meal. In our recipe, we have added delicious tuna to the bake. We chose tuna because it provides a healthy source of iron and potassium and makes a rich and tasty tomato sauce.
This simple 3-step recipe is ready in under 30 minutes and provides a fully balanced dish with 500 kcal, well in line with your daily recommended dose of calories.
We will prepare this spicy tuna pasta bake recipe in a single-serving oven-proof dish and eat straight from it. This will keep the pasta piping hot as you fork through it!
This recipe provides 70% of your daily intake of proteins, thanks to tuna and cheese, and 30% of fibres, thanks to the wholemeal pasta. So good!
Make sure you use canned tuna in brine or spring water rather than oil to reduce the fat content.
This recipe calls for dry pasta, but fresh pasta works just as fine, but you need to increase the quantities by 30%. Also, remember that there’s no need to precook the pasta and the baking time increases to 30 minutes.
