Are you thinking about what to have for dinner? I love tuna, it’s such great food and you can use it for everything. Make a warm sandwich, a wrap, a lunch sandwich, in a salad, with pasta, you name it and you can use tuna. Here is an easy made lasagna recipe, give it a try I’m sure you will like it. 

Simple tuna lasagna


2 leeks, finely sliced
4 zucchini (courgettes), diced
150 g (1 cup) green peas
200 g baby spinach leaves
400 g tin tuna in spring water, well drained
2 tablespoons chopped oregano
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Cracked white pepper
tomato and fresh herbs to garnish (optional)

500 g ricotta
pinch of nutmeg to taste
cracked white pepper
50 g grated parmesan cheese

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.


Preheat the oven to 180°C .
Sauté the leek in a saucepan with 1 tablespoon olive oil over a low – medium heat until soft.
Add the zucchini, peas and spinach.
Cook for 5 minutes, or until the spinach and zucchini has slightly softened.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and fold through the tuna and herbs.
Season with white pepper and fold the tuna through the vegetables, making sure to leave some nice chunky bits.
Spoon the tuna mixture into individual ovenproof dishes or one large baking dish.
Spread over the white sauce.
Grate over the Parmesan cheese.
