I’ve been getting back into cooking and baking lately, with dishes like lasagne, burritos, enchiladas, brownies and a Tuna and Bacon Pasta Bake. The latter was a first for me.
I think having my own kitchen again helps – recently moved into a 2 bedroom flat – before that we were in a shared property… I digress.
Here’s how I made the Tuna and Bacon Pasta Bake:
Jar of tomato and basil sauce or make your own
1 tin tuna – drained
1 pinch seasoning (salt, pepper, pasta/pizza herbs)
70g cheese, grated
2 rashers of bacon – chopped thinly
Cook the chopped bacon in a frying pan till crisp, drain the excess fat and remove from the pan.
Boil pasta in a pan according to packet instructions, around 10 to 15 minutes.
Drain water from pan once pasta is cooked and add the sauce, tuna, bacon and seasoning and mix thoroughly.
Pour pasta, tomato and tuna mix into a small oven proof dish.
Sprinkle with cheese to taste.
Put in the oven for approx 5 mins, until cheese has nicely melted and the edges are a bit crispy.
And… how it turned out 🙂 I got told “it’s lovely” and really enjoyed it myself too.
