Quick Dinner; Tuna Pasta

Busier days call for a quicker dinner and this is one of ours.

Usually served with pasta or buttered spaghetti, I thought potatoes would be a nice change (peeled, chopped, onto an oiled tray, salt, cook for 40 mins at 200C. Throw some cooked peas on about 5 minutes from the end).


The tuna sauce is dead easy;

1 large onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely grated

1tbsp olive oil

1 apple, peeled and grated

3 tomatoes (or 10 large cherry ones), plunged in boiling water for 10 seconds to allow easy peeling

2 tbsp tomato paste

2 tins of tuna


Heat up a pan on the hob, medium heat.

Add the oil, onion and garlic. Sauté for about 3-4 minutes

Add the grated apple and about 50ml hot water (to prevent sticking). Cook for a further 3-4 minutes.

Add the tomatoes (peeled and chopped), tomato paste and tuna.

Mix, lower heat, put on a lid and cook for 10 minutes. .

Et voila. 

Enjoyed by all!
