    This tuna pasta bake uses tomato soup to give it a rich and creamy sauce. It has broccoli and cauliflower and is loaded with cheese. Great for a quick and easy tea.

    Very yummy tuna pasta bake, quick & easy too. Didn't have enough tuna so threw in a tin of salmon, & had no dry mustard so used whole grain mustard. Used broccoli & corn as didn't have cauliflower or spinach...tho think I would leave out the spinach anyway. Thanks for a great recipe - 25 Nov 2015
