Baked Tuna Pasta

So it’s a Friday in Lent and you’re looking for something a little better than fried fish and chips (as delicious as that is!) or you want a baked pasta recipe that won’t ruin your week but still has a flavor profile? Bringing in baked tuna pasta! The tuna gives you a protein boost with just enough mayo to make it a comfort dish. Toss in some veggies and seasonings and you’re ready for dinner.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings):

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 5 oz. can of tuna (don’t drain it! The liquid will keep the dish from drying out in the oven)
  • 8 oz. of pasta (I love using rotini or penne in a baked pasta dish)
  • 15 oz can of sweet corn (drained)
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs and 1/4 cup of grated parmesan combined

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat oil and cook onion and garlic until soft. Turn off heat and add tuna. Bash it up to mix it up!
  • Meanwhile cook pasta al dente and drain.
  • Mix pasta into tuna mix and add mayo and drained can of sweet corn.
  • Spread pasta mixture out evenly in casserole dish and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cheese mix.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
