A New Tuna Bake – Tuna Artichoke and Herb Pasta Bake
December 5, 2011
This is my take on a tuna bake. I try to make it a bit interesting! This version takes advantage of the fresh spinach, garlic, artichokes and herbs from my vegetable patch. Tuna bake is a great family meal as it is super quick to throw together on a week night and it can usually be made from what you have in your pantry.
I could be called a little bit on the obsessive side when it comes to canned goods. I have inspected the product labels of the tinned goods I use regularly. There are a small number of brands I use that do not contain any additives. If they are not available at the supermarket, my cupboard stays empty (I did say I was a little obsessive..)
Serves: 2 adults, 1 child and a large size Mr X’s Lunch
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
4 fresh garlic cloves finely chopped
2 cans of tinned diced tomatoes
1 large tin of tuna in springwater
2-5 small artichoke heads (what ever you have available)
1 cup of shredded spinach leaves, washed and spine removed
2 sprig of lemon thyme
3 sprigs of parsley
large handful of basil leaves to your taste ( I use heaps!)
salt and pepper to season
Pasta of your choice – I have no idea how much I just pour it in the pot – you know how much to use for your family I am sure…
1 lemon juiced (for the artichoke once it is cut)
Shaved Parmesan cheese
Serve with a salad, or if you are having a lazy day like I was yesterday, some grilled sour dough bread on the side.
