We made several adjustments to this recipe, partly to feed 6 and partly due to what was on hand. We preheated the oven to 350ºF. To a pan add olive oil, add tomatoes and 1 cup water, simmer. Cook your pasta, add the broccoli during the last 3 minutes of cooking time. Stir the cream cheese into the tomatoes, stir until it melts. Stir in the tuna to tomatoes. Drain your pasta and broccoli. Stir the tomato sauce into the pasta. Pour everything into a greased 13×9 pan. Sprinkle with cheese and crumbs. Bake for 10 minutes until warm and bubbly.

  • 28 ounces canned chopped tomatoes 2 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 12 16 ounces pasta
  • 12 ounces broccoli florettes
  • 7 ounces 3 spoonfuls of tub cream cheese
  • 13 ounces 3 cans of tuna, drained well
  • 3.5 4 ounces cheddar cheese, finely grated
  • .88 ounces ¾ cup dry breadcrumbs
  • Salad
Heat the reserved oil from the tuna in a very large saucepan. Tip in the tomatoes plus 200ml water and simmer while you cook the pasta, following pack instructions. Add the broccoli for the final 3 mins, then drain, reserving some of the cooking water.
Heat the grill. Stir the soft cheese into the tomato sauce until melted, then mix with the pasta, broccoli and drained tuna. Season with salt and pepper.
Tip into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle on the cheddar and crumbs. Grill, not too close to the heat, for about 4-6 mins until golden and bubbling. Serve with a big side salad, if you like.
