  • 340g tinned sweetcorn
  • 2 x 160g tins of tuna - drained and flaked
  • ¼ cucumber - cut into batons
  • ½ tsp mixed dried herbs

Cook the pasta according to the directions on the packet.

Once the pasta is cooked, drain and add the mayonnaise and olive oil and stir well so that the pasta is evenly coated. Add the tuna, cucumber, mixed herbs and sweetcorn, stir and season.

Serve and top with the chilli flakes and flat leaf parsley. This is great eaten cold the next day and makes an ideal lunch box alternative to sandwiches.

You can really use your imagination here. Add whatever you like eg, cooked mushrooms, peppers, onions and garlic. Substitute the mayonnaise for some classic pesto or make a simple tomato sauce with tinned tomatoes.
