Tuna cheese melt (serves 1)

  1. In a bowl, flake the tuna chunks with a fork. Add the mayonnaise, red onion and gherkin, and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Spread the mustard over one piece of bread, then lay the tuna mixture on top. Sprinkle the cheese, the top with the remaining slice of bread.
  3. Bring a frying pan to a medium heat and melt the butter. Carefully lay the sandwich into the pan, and toast for 3-4 minutes either side or until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Slice in half and serve immediately.
Tuna & sundried tomato pasta (serves 2)

  1. Cook the spaghetti in boiling water as per pack instructions, and reserve ¼ cup of cooking liquid.
  2. In a frying pan, bring a generous drizzle of olive oil to a medium heat. Add the garlic and sundried tomato to the pan, and cook while stirring for 3-4 minutes or until the garlic is lightly golden.
  3. Flake the Pams Tuna chunks into the pan, then add the drained pasta and reserved cooking liquid. Lightly toss the pasta to incorporate all of the ingredients, then fold through the grated parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then garnish with fresh herbs if desired.

  2. In a jug or bowl, whisk together the eggs and cream with a generous amount of salt and pepper. Pour over the tuna mixture, and leave to cook on the stove for 3-4 minutes or until the edges of the frittata start to set.
