We have also decided to post all the recipes on here and there is now an easy to use tab on the navigation bar just for £5 dinners.

Todays dinner is Tuna Pasta Bake, this is a family favourite and such an quick and easy dish to make that even Chris can cook it :) If you are looking to stretch it further serve with garlic bread and mixed veg.  To make the pasta bake is £3.10 (we purchased the ingredients from Tesco), served with frozen veg and garlic bread it came to a grand total of £4.42.

- 1 tin of canned tuna
- 2 can of condensed mushroom soup
- 300g of mushrooms diced
- 1 onion diced
- 1 clove of garlic min, (optional)
- 300g of penne
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- A handful of grated cheese of your choice to top ( we used cheddar).

- Combine all the ingredients in a pyrex dish and top with cheese.
- Cover in foil and place in a pre-heated oven for 30-40 minutes (until pasta is soft and fully cooked) at 200 degrees celsius.
- This dish is suitable for freezing. Allow to cool after cooking and place in an airtight container. Cook from frozen (covering the top with foil) for 20 minutes at 180-200 degrees celsius.
