Tuna Pasta Bake

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Tuna Pasta Bake, and it was cooked and photographed by Aisha. You can check out another of her recipes here! Jazakillah Khair Aisha!
This recipe makes about 3-4 large dishes of pasta, so adjust it as you wish.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Olive Oil
2. Onion
3. Tuna Pasta Bake Sauce
4. Tinned Tuna in Sunflower Oil
5. Green Chillies
6. Salt
7. Red Chilli Powder
8. Any Type of Pasta
9. Peri Peri Chilli Sauce

Bismillah, let's begin!

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil.

Throw in the pasta, and cook according to packet instructions.

Next, to make the pasta sauce, finely slice one large onion.

Take a large saucepan, and drain the oil from the tuna tins and add a splash of olive oil into the pan. Heat on a medium heat. 

Add the sliced onions, and start to fry them.

Next, add one teaspoon crushed green chillies and one teaspoon salt.

Fry the onions until they are slightly brown.

Next, add three cans of tuna (the ones that we drained earlier).

Add Peri Peri chilli sauce, to taste.

Next, pour in two jars of tuna pasta bake sauce. Mix well until everything is combined, and then bring to the boil and allow to bubble for a minute or two, and then turn off the heat. 

By now, the pasta should be cooked. Drain out the water and place the pasta into a large bowl.

Pour the tuna sauce into the pasta.

Mix gently but well until all the pasta is coated in the sauce.

Spoon the pasta into oven dishes.

Sprinkle on grated cheese, breadcrumbs or crushed cornflakes for a crunchy topping. Heat in a hot oven to melt the cheese for a few minutes, and then serve!
