On those nights when my mum, and now me, don’t really want to cook but have no alternative but to, I often throw together a quick tuna mornay. This is because I usually have a can of tuna, some pasta, milk and grated cheese on hand. So if you are at a loss as to what to cook try an easy tuna mornay pasta. Once prepared, it can look a little bland but you can dress it up by serving it with a colourful salad or some vegetables on the side.
Utensils required: saucepan to cook pasta, another saucepan to cook sauce or put cooked pasta aside on a plate to use the same saucepan if you only have access to one, knife to chop onion, and a spoon to stir the mixture.
Serve in a bowl with a little grated cheese on top. You could also have a side salad.
Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
