    Fussy F loved this and cleared her plate, D started off enthusiasticly but had to be bribed with ice-cream to finish she did have a large helping though. I used a bit of the Tuna oil to fry the onion and added a chicken stock cube to the pasta water. Overall good I will definately be cooking it again.

    Can I freeze the finished product? DS2 completely rejected it (and DS1 getting over tummyache so ate a couple of mouthfuls). I can't throw it out (sob)

    Thanks so much for this. DD, (8) has recently lost interest in pasta but she had so much fun making this with me that she ate the lot and asked for the leftovers to be kept for lunch the next day. Fussy DH won't eat tuna but it's no hardship to keep a bit to one side and add meatballs or mince.

    This is really easy, and everyone, even fussy DS2 loved it
