A Basic Pasta

Published Wednesday, 26 August, 2009 by Natalie Bowen

Really filling, and very easy :)



  • Dried Pasta... any work well, but i prefer twirly ones :D
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Tomato Puree
  • Cheese/Tuna/Both/None :)


1. Boil your pasta adding salt to the water for later on.

2. While pasta is cooking grate your cheese/drain your tuna.

3. When the pasta is cooked add about half a tube of tomato puree, stirring well, to give you a passata consistency. Of course you can just use passata if you want, and drain the pasta instead.

4. Then, add the tuna if using any, stirring it in well. Leave for a minute to heat up the tuna. Add salt/pepper to taste.

5. Serve into a bowl and sprinkle lots of cheese on top :)


This can be enjoyed as a simple tomato pasta, or with cheese or tuna, or both :)
