Recipe tips
  • This is great served with salad if you have any. If not, add 1 cup of peas to the pasta 2 minutes before the end of cooking time to add colour and extra goodness – remember, this will increase your vegetable portion intake.
  • You could use a tin of salmon in place of tuna.
  • If your children are fussy eaters, look out for unusual pasta shapes to make food more appealing.
