DF brought back 4 tins of Tuna 'in oil' bleurgh! by accident, so i was thinking maybe a Tuna Pasta Bake or something, but i dont know how! Help!!! ...Or any other suggestions?

(P.S I would really like to avoid using one of those packet thingymajigs, hence asking here for REAL meal ideas grin)

Oh Norks, that does look lovely, but i was really hoping for something i could pop in the oven, as DF and i have about a 20 minute eating gap between work for him, ork for me, and the DS change-over
Shall certainly pop that in my 'bookmarks' though, as it looks scrummy!

Easy Tuna Casserole was one of my Mums regular meals.
Put all the following in a large casserole dish and mix together:

Semi-cooked or fresh pasta
Tin of chicken or mushroom soup (2 tins if large casserole) homemade if you have any in
Tin of sweetcorn/peas/both
Chopped onion
Any other veg your family will eat

Top with cheese
30 mins at 180

PS - if they don't like chicken or mushroom soup/creamy sauces swap for tinned tomatoes and add herbs/garlic

Realised that i wouldnt be able to do this without a trip to the shop, didnt have half the stuff i wanted at shop, ended up with...
onion, leek, carrot(grated), mushrooms, fried lightly in oil from tinned tuna, added 3 tins of tuna, stirred in, poured over cooked pasta, with one of those poxy homepride sauces (creamy tomato and basil) topped with cheese, in oven for about 20 minutes.
only had time to try it, but it is goo-oo-ood!
Off to work now, but thanks for the ideas, i shall cook both of them over the next few weeks as im so intruiged now as they sound delish!
Thanks again.
P.S i hate Co-op!
