'No Cooking' Tuna Pasta Bake!

You ONLY need to cook the pasta. Then it's all about the mixing and popping into the oven. Done!


  • 250 g pasta cooked, drained and placed in an oven proof dish
  • 2 cans tuna drained and flaked
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley/oregano
  • 200 g grated cheese

In a bowl/jug mix the below:

  • 1 egg
  • 200 ml whipping/cooking cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 200C. Cook and drain pasta. Place in an oven proof dish.
  • Mix into the cooked pasta - the tuna, grated onion, half the shredded cheddar and dried oregano or parsley.
  • Next, pour the egg + cream mix into the dish and mix with the pasta. If adding any baby spinach just add them on top now. If not, just omit spinach.
  • Sprinkle remaining grated cheddar on top. Pop this in the pre-heated oven for 10-15 mins until cheese is bubbling and golden. Enjoy!


Top tips:
  • Use pasta like spirals, macaroni, shells, small penne etc.
  • Buy cheese already grated to make life easier:)
  • I use the Ayam Brand tinned tuna. 
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge.
