  • It’s quite quick to make a great recipe, thanks


  • This bow tie tuna bake looks great tha ks


  • Oh, yum. Will give it a go. Thanks.


  • Not suitable for our family, as only 1 eats tuna.


  • I haven’t made tuna pasta bake in so long. Will try this one for dinner tonight.


  • I haven’t made this for ages. Thanks for the reminder.


  • The family would enjoy this, thanks for sharing.


  • Thanks for sharing, looks delicious, and sounds rather straight forward to make. Added to my list!


  • Thanks for sharing – I’ll substitute some salmon instead of the tuna, and I’m sure it will be great.


  • I don’t like tuna myself, but hubby would appreciate me making this. I’m sure the cats would enjoy the leftovers too!


  • Love tuna bakes but will have to omit beans. Thinking the one who hates tin fish can fend for himself at 30 he can.


  • it is interesting that you have added beans as an ingredient. this sounds like a decent and hearty dish. I will give it a go. cheers for posting your recipe


  • oh this looks really nice – I love the addition of the strong cheddar and beans – thanks for sharing your recipe

    • I always use strong cheddar in my recipes – just gives recipes the kick and flavour they need.


  • Tuna pasta bake is always a good meal and I love the leftovers for lunches too. Your tuna bake looks terrific and tasty.


  • Something quick and easy to prepare during the week. I love the choice of farfalle pasta! :-)
