Quick Tuna Pasta Bake

Did you know?

  • Pasta is made from flour, water, salt and sometimes egg, and is a good source of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates help fuel your body by providing energy.
  • Tuna is rich in vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium, and so is vital for healthy bones and teeth.
  • Tuna is most popular tinned fish in the UK and keeps high vitamin content when tinned, however, fresh tuna is a richer source of omega-3 fatty acids.
