Pasta spirals in a gooey, soupy, cheesy sauce with onions and tuna. Delicious.

  • 1 tbsp Light olive oil
  • 1 Large onion finely chopped
  • 350 g / 14 oz Fusilli (pasta twists)
  • 295 g Tin condensed asparagus or celery soup
  • 100 g Mature cheddar grated
  • 185 g / 6 ½ oz Tin of tuna drained


  • Sweat the onions on a low heat in a large non-stick pan for 10 minutes stirring occasionally (using a lid makes them less likely to burn). You want to cook not brown the onions.
  • While the onions are sweating, cook the pasta according to the instructions in plenty of boiling salted water.
  • Add the soup and tuna to the onions and heat through.
  • Stir in the grated Cheddar until it melts.
  • Drain the pasta, add to the the sauce and mix thoroughly.
  • Serve with a mixed salad.


Don't use pre-grated Cheddar cheese as this is coated in starch and doesn't melt as well as freshly grated Cheddar.
