Recipe – Organic Cheese and Tuna Fusilli (81p/Person)

I intend for this recipe to be as helpful as possible and to also provide a few helpful tips along the way. Right.. let’s go!

Key Facts:

  • Serves 1 (multiply ingredients by the number of mouths that need feeding..)
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cooking Time: 10 mins
  • Difficulty: Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy
  • A balanced meal with carbs, protein and fat all in one dish.

Ingredients (Cost 81p Per Person):

  • 75g Organic Wholewheat Fusilli – 15p (£1 for 500g from Tesco)
  • 3g (1/2 Level Teaspoon) Sea Salt – about 2p (89p from Aldi for 110g)
  • Water 
  • 100g (1/2 Tin) Tuna Chunks in Spring Water – 45p (from Lidl)
  • 30g Organic Medium Cheddar – approx. 19p (Currently £1.59 for 250g from Lidl)


  • Pan
  • Stirrer
  • Tin opener
  • Fork
  • Cheese Grater


  1. Weigh out approx. 75g of fusilli per person into a clean pan and cover with water. Set to a medium-high heat to ensure it cooks nicely and quickly. Add salt to taste (not too much). Cook until the fusilli is soft yet firm (to your liking), this should take between 10-15 minutes. Stit occasionally, to ensure the fusilli does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  2. When cooked, drain the excess water away and dish up the fusilli on a plate or bowl.
  3. Add 1/2 a tin of tuna (per person) and approx. 30g of grated cheese (per person) and mix well (for an even distribution).
  4. Enjoy!

Hopefully I have managed to show you it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to eat delicious organic food everyday and not just as a one-off.
