BLW Idea: Tuna Pasta Bake

Tuna pasta bake is an old favourite of many; it’s balanced, filling and simple to make! That’s why it’s perfect for kids.

We love this take on tuna pasta bake by Feeding_Three! She makes the roux herself with milk and flour, which is a great way to ensure your little one isn’t getting too much salt and sugar like jarred sauces are. A big batch of this could be a perfect one dish dinner for the whole family, perhaps with a side salad, home-made chips and garlic bread? Yum!

T U N A • P A S T A • B A K E Suitable from 6months+ I done a Q&A on my stories a few days ago asking what you always have in your cupboards. Most answers were pasta, tin of tuna, sweetcorn and beans. . So I thought I’d show you what can be made with most of these ingredients. (Minus the beans 😆) . Do you ever have those days where you haven’t been shopping, the kids have been rug rats all day and you can barely find the will to live let alone go to shop for dinner ingredients. This is your answer, with minimal ingredients that most of us have in the cupboards, you have yourself the perfect family friendly dinner! . I serve mine with homemade cooked chips and a bit of salad. . Ingredients •300g pasta (I use quick cook fusilli) •1tin of sweetcorn •1 tin of tuna •1 cup cheese, grated •1 1/2 cup of milk •1tbsp Garlic powder (optional) •1tsp paprika (optional) •2tbsp flour . Method 1) Preheat oven at 180° 2) Cook pasta as per packet instructions, reduce cooking time by 2min 3) Add the milk and and flour to a saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce heat. 4) Stir in the cheese, and stir until thickened 5) Drain pasta and pour into a large bowl, stir in sweetcorn, tuna, garlic, paprika and cheese sauce. 6) Mix well and add to an oven proof dish 7) Top with grated cheese and bake for 20-25min until cheese have melted and turning golden. . This is great for next day leftovers, lunchboxes or even to freeze ❄️ .
