Tuna Pasta Bake

Tuna Pasta Bake 

225g (1/2 lb) pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tin (185g) tuna flakes in brine (do not drain!)
180g (3/4 cup) ketchup (I used Heinz)
100g (1 cup) grated cheese (I used Edam)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp dried Italian herbs
2 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated

1) Cook pasta according to the package directions and drain well. Preheat oven to 180C / 350F and lightly grease a 23 x 13 cm / 9 x 5 inch (or similar) baking dish.

2) In a skillet, heat a tablespoon of oil. Add onion and garlic and cook for a few minutes until soft and fragrant. Set aside and cool a bit.

3) In a large bowl, combine together the flaked tuna in brine, ketchup, grated cheese, salt and Italian herbs. Add onion/garlic mixture and stir to combine. Add pasta and toss to coat. Pour the mixture into the baking dish.

4) In a small skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add breadcrumbs and cook for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned. 

5) Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the pasta and sprinkle the breadcrumbs on top.

6) Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.

Serves 2-3.
