Ingredients

  • 1 onion chopped

  • 2 tins tuna

  • 2 cloves garlic chopped

  • 500g tagliatelle

  • 1 tin cream of tomato soup

  • 200ml cream

  • 200ml smooth plain cottage cheese

  • 1 handful medium or strong cheddar cheese

  • 1 tbsp flavouring (e.g. salt, pepper, basil or red wine; optional)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Cook pasta according to instructions on packet.
  3. In the meantime in a medium saucepan, fry the onion until translucent. Add the garlic.
  4. Flake the tuna and add to the onions, fry together for a minute or two.
  5. Add the cream of tomato soup, red wine (if using) and spices.
  6. Add a little water if mixture seems to thick. Leave to simmer for about 5 minutes.
  7. In the meantime in a large mixing bowl, mix the cream, smooth cottage cheese and half of the cheddar cheese. If too thick add a little milk. Leave to stand.
  8. In an oven-proof dish place first a layer of cooked pasta and then a layer of tuna sauce, then a layer of white sauce.
  9. Continue until all ingredients have been used. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top.
  10. Bake in the oven at 190C for about 20-30 minutes until cheese topping is turning brown.
  11. Very important - remove from oven and leave to stand for at least 15 minutes, otherwise the dish will be runny.
  12. This is even better eaten the next day.

Handy Hint

Leave to stand before serving.

    nice and easy and yummy. I always tend to add a steamed and blended courgette to any pasta sauce to bulk up on veg. Makes it creamy too. Peel the courgette if you want the fibre and no trace of the taste!

    This seems simple but is really delicious and easy. Best served with a nice salad.
