Welcome back to Recipe Roundup and thanks for all your lovely feedback despite my half-decent cooking and decidedly mediocre food photography! Sticking with the Slimming World friendly theme (to try to keep myself a little in line more than anything), I’m sharing a modern staple today of pasta bake – but with the option of making the sauce low fat (should you so wish).
What You Need
- Pasta shapes of your choice
- Fat free natural yoghurt (or cream/creme fraiche if you’re going the slightly naughtier route)
- Chicken stock pot
- Smoked paprika
- 4 garlic cloves
- Fresh or dried basil
- Worcester sauce
- 4 spring onions
- 1 leek
- A little or a lot of cheddar cheese – your choice
- 2 cans of tuna in spring water
- Cooked ham sliced into small pieces (or leftover slow-cooked ham would be perfect)
- Mixed peppers
- Handful of spinach
- Cook the pasta according to instructions
- Cook the spring onions, garlic, leek, sweetcorn & peppers for a few minutes until softened
- Add ham, tuna, Worcester sauce, paprika, basil, stock and a splash of water – simmer for a few minutes
- Remove from the heat and stir in the yoghurt, half the cheese and the spinach
- Combine with the pasta and put in an ovenproof dish, sprinkling the remainder of the cheese, and a few more drops of Worcester sauce, on top
- Bake in the oven for around 30 mins, or until the sauce is bubbling and the top is a little crispy & golden
*Healthy Halo/Perfect For Kids*
- Swap the standard pasta for giant rigatoni and it’s a great meal for the early days of baby-led weaning.

That looks really tasty and somethings to feed the whole family. Off to go and pin! #bloggerclubuk
We love tuna pasta in our house but it’s been so long since I’ve made it. I think I will have to resurrect it and try this recipe.

Looks yummy! I quite often cook pasta bakes but tend to cheat and just use the jars of sauce – I really should branch out and try making one from scratch like this! x #TheList
