Origin of dish:  UK
Type of cooking:  Hob
 
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
 
Ingredients (serves 4):

    Dried pasta to serve 4 (I find shells work well with this, but again, down to preference)
    2 tins of tuna (I use in springwater)
    1 tin of mushroom soup (condensed works best, but if not, cream of mushroom)
    1 tin of sweetcorn
    1 onion chopped mushrooms
    2 cloves of garlic
    2 tablespoons of extra low fat cream cheese
    1 handful of low fat grated cheese
    lots of black pepper

Method:

1-Add pasta to boiling water and cook according to packet instructions, whilst this is cooking, prepare tuna sauce:

2-Chop onions - fry with garlic til slightly translucent, but not brown, they should add a crunch to the finished dish.

3-Add tin of soup.

4-Add sweetcorn.

5-Add mushrooms.

6-Drain tuna tins and add.

7-Add cream cheese and grated cheese.

8-Add lots of blak pepper.

9-Drain the pasta when cooked.

10-Add pasta to the sauce and toss.

11-Serve straight away with more grated cheese if required and garlic bread (low fat of course!)
Advice: The above is a low-fat version of this dish that I have loved for years!

Obviously, for a more indulgent dish, swap all the low fat goodies for full fat, and add a splash of cream with the soup.

I have also used the above to make a chicken version! Follow same recipe, but fry chicken with the onions and add chicken soup instead of mushroom.

I could go on with other ideas, but feel free to play about with this yourself!
