Tuna Pasta Bolognese Recipe
Wheat free, gluten free, dairy free, soya free, egg free & beef free.
Usually when I mention that I’ve had tuna pasta bolognese for tea people seem very confused and then say something like ‘that sounds disgusting’.. (how dare they). But I promise you it’s delicious! My cousin actually introduced me to this about ten years ago and we ate it all the time as she’s not a fan of beef mince meat. Beef allergy can be common in children with cow’s milk protein allergy so if you or your little one’s are allergic to beef then this is a great alternative for a pasta bolognese. Even if you’re not allergic though still give this recipe a try as you won’t regret it!
You can’t taste the tuna in this bolognese at all, my brother actually hates tuna, he can’t stand the smell of it and I made him this bolognese a few years ago and never mentioned I used tuna. I asked him what he thought after he had eaten it all and he loved it, he said it was one of the nicest bologneses he’s ever eaten. I then said ‘I thought you didn’t like tuna?’ He couldn’t believe it!!
1 can of tuna
400g pasta – Use wheat free & gluten free pasta if needed
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1. Cook pasta as per the packet instructions.
2. Pour the passata into a pan, add the drained pasta and stir until all the pasta is covered.
3. Drain the tuna and add to pan along with the pepper, garlic, basil and oregano. Stir until all combined.
4. The tuna pasta bolognese is ready once the passata is warm.
5. Serve and enjoy!
Notes about this recipe:
You can adjust the herbs and spices to suit your taste, I find canned tuna in spring water works best. If you are ok with wheat then you can add vinegar to the canned tuna before putting it into the bolognese. Many supermarkets sell wheat & gluten free pasta in the free from section. You could also use chopped tomatoes in this recipe. If you use fresh pasta this bolognese will be suitable for freezing.
