How to make Mediterranean tuna pasta bake

Tuna pasta bake is a recipe everyone needs to know! With our twist on this classic yet simple recipe, it'll be one of your new go-to dishes. Make sure to save the leftovers for lunch!

What you'll need:

  • 300g fusilli
  • 800g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 50g black olives, sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tins of tuna
  • 100g grated cheddar
  • 100g grated mozzarella


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°
  2. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Cook the pasta for a couple of minutes less than the packet suggests (around 10 minutes) and drain.
  3. Add the cooked pasta to an ovenproof dish, followed by the tuna, tomatoes, onion, olives and lemon zest, and season to taste.
  4. Then, add half of the cheddar and half of the mozzarella and stir thoroughly.
  5. Top with the remaining cheese to achieve a crisp topping and bake in the oven for around 15 minutes – or until the cheese is golden and bubbling.
  6. Time to serve! This dish is delicious with a side salad or a serving of warm garlic bread.
