Tuna Pasta Bake

Tuna is rich in protein, vitamin D & B12 so it’s a nutritious choice for dinner or any main meal. This tuna pasta bake dish is one of my favourite fish recipes and it’s so easy to make.  Just use a tin of tomato soup to make the base of this sauce and the preparation time is just about 10 minutes. Once cooked the baked cheese, sprinkled on top at the end of the preparation process, makes for a lovely crisp topping.
