Tuna & Veggie Pasta Bake

October 8, 2022

And guess what … it’s Weight Watchers Friendly

Tuna Pasta Bake would have to be one of my all time favourite meals. However, I know it really isn’t that nourishing or good for you. Well, it is, it is just full of fat and carbs and certainly not WW Friendly.

So I decided to write my own recipe (OMG) and make it taste delicious, be nutritious and be WW Friendly.

Guess what – I did it !!

This meal is for 6 people and it’s 7 Personal Points per serve. To say that I am happy is an understatement.
