This Sunday evening, I wanted an easy dinner, so I made a reliable old faithful from my share-flat days. It is a tuna pasta bake that is dead simple and very cheap to make, so I thought I'd share the recipe here.
You will need:
300g dried pasta, cooked
425g tuna in springwater, drained
200g jar tomato paste
one diced onion
1 zucchini, sliced thinly into rounds
5 large mushrooms, sliced
small packet of grated cheese
Place the pasta, tuna, onion and tomato paste in the base of a large shallow casserole dish (~10") and combine well.
Top the tuna mixture with a layer of sliced zucchini, then a layer of sliced mushrooms, and finally with a layer of grated cheese.
Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees Celsius) for 40 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the food is cooked through. Serves 4-6.
Thanks to Angela for introducing me to this dish.For dessert, I made my Mum's steamed soda pudding - it is rich and delicious, as it contains plum jam in the batter as well as on top:
