We’re trying to eat dinners that can be easily shared with Little Man and this dish fits the bill perfectly. Not only does it have fish in it (something we need to eat more of in this house!), it has a good mix of vegetables.
The dish goes together really quickly and makes enough for lunch the next day.
I feel like I’ve become a brand representative for Coles, but I swear I’m not it just happens that the Coles Feed Your Family application makes it easy to pick meals, order the groceries online and then make them with Curtis Stone’s help. I have enough on my plate that I need the help this application offers and for that I’m going to sing it’s praises whenever I get a chance!
So here’s another great recipe from Coles Feed Your Family…
200 g Fresh Green Beans, trimmed, cut crossways into 5cm-long pieces
350 g Fusilli
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1 medium Brown Onion, finely chopped
4 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
2 medium Tomatoes, cored, cut into small dice
4 large Sprigs of Fresh Thyme leaves removed
1/2 tsp Dried Chilli Flakes
2 x 185 g cans Tuna, drained
1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil over high heat. Add beans and cook for 4 mins, or until just tender. Using a slotted spoon, remove beans and transfer to a bowl of iced water to cool completely. Drain beans well. Return water to boil.
2. Cook fusilli in boiling water according to packet directions, stirring often. Drain pasta, reserving 2⁄3 cup of the water.
3. Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan. Add onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt to pan and cook for 1 min, or until tender. Add tomatoes, thyme and chilli flakes and cook for 3 mins, or until tomatoes soften. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper.
4. Add reserved pasta water, beans and remaining oil to tomato mixture. Add pasta and tuna and toss to coat, gently breaking up tuna with a spoon into large bite-size pieces. Serve immediately.
