Tuna Pasta Bake

Posted on


How is everyone getting on with their weight loss?

I made the following recipe about 3 weeks ago for me, my mum and my partner. As it said the recipe served 4 I expected my partner to eat 2 peoples servings as he usually does. AND yes, before you think it, he’s a rake, totally not fair.

Well I made it to the exact measurements and well…. To eat 1/4 of this meal you would have to me a giant. Even my partner couldn’t eat his 1 serving. Madness!

So, I have pointed this recipe as if it were to feed 6 which it will easily do, served with a little salad maybe. It may even feed 8 with salad and garlic bread or something similar.
