Cheesy Tuna Pasta Bake

I spied this recipe in BBC Good Food Magazine and it is fantastic. It's easy and quick to pull together and so so tasty. I tweaked the recipe slightly - the main change being the addition of Creme Fraiche and Parmesan. Even Lowen, who is going through a slightly fussy phase, seemed to enjoy this. 


Ingredients:
400g Pasta (I used Cavatappi)
200g Tin Tuna in Oil
190g Jar of Pesto (I used Sun Dried Tomato)
200g Cherry Tomatoes, halved
200g Cheddar, grated
75g Parmesan, grated
2 TBSP Chopped Parsley
1 TBSP Creme Fraiche

Method:
Step 1: Cook pasta according to instructions
Step 2:Put tuna with oil, pesto, cheddar and tomatoes a large bowl then stir through the creme fraiche and parsley. Drain the pasta and mix
Step 3: Pour into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle over the parmesan - grill for 3 minutes until bubbling and golden.
