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 :)

    Mate, I've been living on Plain Pasta/Cheese for a couple weeks now, you'd think it would be dry and bland, but get some good strong cheese (and maybe a little tommy purée) and you can have really cheap meals all day every day. eg, one meal in my books is a BIG plate full, and i can get that down to 65p per sitting. 3 meals a day (granted no veg in this really), that's just £1.95/day. I use a LOT of cheese though, 50p of that 65p is just for cheese (maybe a pit of purée).

    Anyway, until someone finds me as nice a meal for just a cheap, im sticking with this for a long time, a little extra cash and ill throw in some ham/chicken/cheese sauce whatever I want :). Awesome flexible and cheap dish.

    What planet were you born on? Pasta is never ever ever ever ever cooked in a micro wave... You must have led a sheltered childhood. Idiot
