How to make Cheesy Tuna Pasta Bake

I'm ill. I have little in the cupboards. Time for a Ready Steady Cook meal. With some delving I found I had all of these ingredients to hand.

  1. Heat your oven to Gas Mark 4
  2. Put the pasta on to cook for a few minutes, they don't need to be fully cooked
  3. Gently fry off the onion and garlic, and added the chili flakes
  4. Then add the tuna, breaking up any larger pieces, followed by the peas and the haloumi
  5. Add the bolognaise sauce then the pasta and give it a good stir
  6. Tip the mix into a baking dish, cover with the cheddar
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the cheese is all bubbly and some of the exposed pasta is crunchy

As a bonus, I got to make use of two of my new Le Creuset baking dishes as well :)

So good I ate it straight from the small dish at the top of the pic!
Question from the Chef

“Anyone else got any magical store-cupboard recipes that they created on the fly?”
