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. 

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

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.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
