Tuna Pasta Bake


  • 250g pasta
  • 2 x 400g cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree (tomato paste in the US, the thick concentrated one)
  • 200g sweetcorn
  • 2 x 185g cans tuna chunks (drained)
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 50g parmesan
  • salt and pepper
  • 400ml semi skimmed or whole milk
  • 1 ball mozzarella


  1. Pre heat the oven to 190C.
  2. Grease a 9x9 casserole dish with a little olive oil (I use my favourite pyrex one)
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the pasta, tomatoes, tomato puree, sweetcorn, tuna, garlic, parmesan and salt and pepper.
  4. Once well mixed, pour into the dish and flatten down.
  5. Pour over the milk, but don't mix it in.
  6. Cover with foil and carefully place in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes.
  7. After 40 minutes the pasta should be nearly cooked.
  8. Tear up the mozzarella and top the pasta with it evenly, don't worry if there's a few gaps.
  9. Return to the oven for a further 10 minutes without the foil, until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to turn golden.
  10. It may come out the oven slightly liquidy, I leave mine for 5 to 10 minutes before serving (the cheese is usually like lava anyway!)
