Tuna Pasta Bake

I had a couple of hours to spare today so I decided to finally cook the ingredients I bought last week. This is one of my favorite pasta recipes. It’s simple and easy to make. I got this recipe from Kerry Ann Dunlop on Jamie Oliver’s channel.

1 whole white onion (large)
1 bulb of garlic (large)
1 tbsp. dried chili flakes (optional)
3/4 tbsp. ground black pepper
about 1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 kilo tomato sauce
3 cans of chunky tuna
2 tbsp. dried basil leaves
1 tbsp. dried oregano leaves (optional)
fresh basil leaves
800 g penne pasta
595 g cheddar cheese


  • Fry onions & garlic in olive oil (low-medium heat)
  • Add dried chili flakes
  • Add tomato sauce
  • Add fresh basil leaves, dried basil and oregano leaves.
  • Add the tuna
  • Add salt
  • Stir
  • Add the pasta to the salted boiling water
  • Drain the pasta once it’s al dente
  • Coat the pasta with the sauce
  • Transfer it into a baking pan
  • Add cheddar cheese on top
  • Put fresh basil leaves on top
  • Bake it in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes/until golden
