Roasted Vegetable and Tuna Pasta Recipe

I do a lot of experimenting in the kitchen. It doesn’t always go to plan, but one of the ways I am inspired is by pre-packed meals. For example, I came up with this roasted vegetable and tuna pasta recipe after buying a ready made version. And I thought – I can do better than that! In fact, it was so oily pretty much any thing would have been better than the ready made one!

I wanted a cold pasta dish that would be easy to prepare, and convient for lunch time – I am trying to cut back on bread, and come up with healthier options of foods I know my family like!

So I had a little a little rummage in the fridge to see what I could use, and this is what I came up with:

Roasted Vegetable and Tuna Pasta Recipe:

Servings  3 – 4

Ingredients:

1 x courgette

1 x white onion

1 x yellow pepper

1 x orange pepper

1 x tablespoon olive oil

1 x tin tuna (in brine or spring water) (drained)

200 grams pasta shapes

Method:

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees centigrade.

Roughly chop the courgette, onion and peppers and add to an ovenproof dish.

Add the olive oil to the vegetables and give them a stir to ensure all the pieces are coated.

Roast the vegetables in the oven for 30 minutes. Give them a stir after 10, and 20 minutes to ensure they cook evenly.

While the vegetables are roasting, cook your 200g of pasta shapes according to the packet instructions. When it is ready, Drain out the excess water.

After your vegetables and pasta have cooled, put them in an airtight tub, and mix through the tin of tuna. Store in the fridge.

And that’s it! Simple!

This roasted vegetable and tuna pasta recipe will last in the fridge for two to three days – providing you don’t eat it all of course.

The verdict – I liked it. It wasn’t oily, and as it had been chilled the flavours had really blended well together. Mr C ate it but thought it could of been improved by a large dollop of mayonnaise – I think he is perhaps forgetting the fact that the aim was to make a healthy version!

I will definitely be making this again, especially since I could easily substitute the vegetables for those I have available.

Winner!

    This sounds yummy!! I like tuna pasta but it can’t be in a tomato sauce and I don’t really like mayonnaise (a little is okay with tuna) so this sounds like a perfect dish for me!!! Xx
