    I've made this tuna pasta bake with light soured cream and light mayonnaise with equally good results. At home, I serve it with a salad a quick dinner.

    A super easy, cheap, filling and tasty tuna pasta bake that you're likely to be able to make even when the cupboards are bare. You can use breadcrumbs instead of cornflakes for the topping. You can also use tinned mushrooms instead of the peas. Enjoy!

    These delicious, budget friendly fish cakes are easy to make and fantastically crispy. You can use ready-made mashed potato or make your own.

    A nice, cheap, store-cupboard dinner. I tend to serve this with a salad and maybe some garlic bread. Thanks to ruthymunchkin for the photo.

    This salad is a delicious Italian-inspired combination of tuna, olive oil, lemon juice and runner and cannellini beans.

    This is a very simple and quick recipe to make when you have a few ingredients in the cupboard and a hungry family to feed. If you don't have macaroni to hand, simply use another small pasta shape.

    A quick and easy recipe I made for my seven young children out of whatever I could find in my cupboard one evening! I'd say normally it'd serve 4 adults or up to 6 children.

    In Spain, this is sometimes called ensalada campera. It's a filling potato and tuna salad with peppers, olives and boiled eggs. Makes a really nice change from mayo based potato salad.

    An incredibly easy pasta dish that everyone will love. Pasta, tuna, celery, courgette and cheese are baked together to perfection. Enjoy with a side salad or crusty bread, if desired.
