    Maileen '78's Note:

    Mouth-watering tuna pasta baked topped with grated cheddar and grated mozzarella! Different from the usual tuna pasta bake which calls for condensed soup. Very easy and very YUMMY!

    1. 1
      Heat oil in a fairly large pan (preferably a wok) and add the onion until it softens. About 2-3 minutes. Then add the tuna and sauté for another 3 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, Italian herb seasoning, oregano, garlic granules and salt & pepper to taste.
    3. 3
      Simmer for about 15 minutes-20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened stirring from time to time.
    4. 4
      While the sauce is simmering, heat the oven at 200 degrees or 180 for fan-assisted ovens. And cooked the pasta shells 2 minutes less than the directed time on the packet. It needs to be a little bit tougher as it still needs to be cooked in the oven. DO NOT OVERCOOK. Drain and set aside.
    5. 5
      When the sauce has thickened add the chopped fresh basil and the drained pasta shells and stir until thoroughly mix.
    6. 6
      Transfer into an oven-proof dish and topped with grated cheddar and mozzarella. Bake for another 20- 25 minutes or until the cheese on top has turned golden brown.

      I made this with single cream with the chop tomatoes, coriander, fresh garlic and ready salted crisps crushed on top. Its pretty much how I already make it only thing I never tried it with was mozzarella though. One of my favourite meals and my partner loves it as well even before I used this recipe.

      Ok so I found this to be a great base. I added a few things to this to make it how i wanted. I added a leak with the onions and i didn't saute the tuna ( Its coming out of a can... its already cooked and going in the oven??? ) but i did add the garlic ( i used fresh garlic ) chilli ( added a chilli for some spice ) and herbs to get the aroma going. Took it off the heat and added it to my baking dish. Mixed in the tuna tin tomato's and i used pasta sauce. This is where i added my own stuff to boost it a bit. While the pasta was cooking i added some capers, marinated olives ( I used tequila lime and chilli marinated ) frozen peas, green beans ( I blanched the beans and peas ) and a zucchini ( courgette ). Put it in the oven for about 35 mins on 150 then turned it up to 180 for 5 mins to get the cheese brown and crispy... Was amaizing whole family was going back for seconds.

      Glad to find a tasty casserole that doesn't use canned soup! I cut back on the amount of pasta a bit, but still ended up with more servings than the recipe says...
