A tuna tomato pasta bake for a quick and easy mid-week meal should be in every family recipe book.

This recipe from Sainsbury’s fits the bill and is a favourite of the grandchildren when they stay. Mind you, they are hungry again about an hour later and the assault on the fridge starts again!

Whatever you do, don’t tell our daughters-in-law that all the grandchildren know where Nanny hides the chocolate and sweets. It’s a secret!
