This is an easy twist on a traditional pasta when you might only have a can of tuna in the pantry and/or you want a change from creamy, saucy norm.
Ingredient's: 1 Onion, 1 clove of garlic, 1 small tin of tuna (plain seawater or with lemon is ideal), 1 piece of bread, between 100/150 grams of cheese (any sort of basic block of cheese), sea salt, cracked pepper (though plain salt or pepper are OK) , teaspoon/tablespoon of butter and olive oil, and pasta of your choice.
Total Cooking and prep time : 12/15 minutes (may vary depending on thickness of pasta)
Boil water in a kettle and/or stove top and get your pasta cooking in saucepan or pot.
Heat up frying pan and put a small amount of olive oil in it (I recommend just above medium heat).
Slice 1 onion and 1 clove of garlic finely. While the onion and garlic are cooking, cut 1 piece of bread (any bread will do) in to small squares, then put a small amount of butter in pan and as soon as it starts melting put the bread in, and stir.
Then open up tin tuna and, once the bread has turned light brown, chuck in the tuna, juice and all. While the tuna is cooking, cut a small rectangle from a block of cheese, and just like the bread, cut into small square's. Once the tuna is heated up chuck in the cheese in the pan and smell the cheese melting with the tuna, bread, onion and garlic. Add sea salt and cracked pepper.
All the while make sure you stir your pasta too.
Once pasta is done you can either mix through with the tuna in the frying pan or place in bowl or plate and add the cheesy tuna bread on top and enjoy.
Extras: capsicum, spring onion, lemon juice, whatever you like.
