Spaghetti tuna bolognese

Easy midweek dinner to cook together

Recipe by: Mixer | Eat Move Learn cook

Bolognese is one of my favourite pasta dishes. This bolognese uses tuna instead of beef mince, and fish is important to eat because it has lots of nutrients like omega-3 and vitamin D. Remember to ask an adult first – they might be saving the ingredients for something else!

This recipe is from our Eat Move Learn programme helping kids to eat healthily and stay active.

Method

  1. Put the tuna into a bowl and break up into small flakes using a fork.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick saucepan over a low heat.
  3. Add the crushed garlic and stir for two minutes. Then add the tomatoes and chilli (optional) and allow to simmer until the sauce thickens.
  4. Add the tuna, mushrooms and parsley to the sauce ­– leaving a small amount of parsley aside for decoration – and mix thoroughly.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the pasta as instructed, avoiding adding salt to the cooking water.
  6. Once the pasta is cooked, drain off the cooking water, then add to the sauce and mix thoroughly. Season with black pepper.
  7. Divide between two bowls and sprinkle the remaining parsley on top. Serve immediately.
