Healthy Tuna Pasta


TOTAL TIME: 24 MINS

SERVINGS: 2

CALORIES/SERVING: 459 KCAL


INGREDIENTS:

  • 150g wholemeal penne

  • 1 large leek (200g), halved, and thinly sliced

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 160g cherry tomatoes, preferably on the vine

  • 198g can sweetcorn, drained

  • 75g ricotta

  • 160g can tuna in spring water, drained

  • handful of basil, chopped, plus a few whole leaves to serve


METHOD:

  1. Boil the penne with the leek in a large pan of salted water following pack instructions, until al dente.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat and fry the tomatoes for a few minutes, until they start to burst and soften. Add the sweetcorn and cook for 2-3 mins to heat through. Drain the pasta and leeks, reserving a little of the pasta water. Tip the drained pasta and leeks into the pan with the tomatoes, then toss through the ricotta and tuna.

  3. Season with plenty of black pepper. If you want to loosen the consistency, stir in some of the reserved pasta water along with the chopped basil. Serve scattered with the whole basil leaves.
