Tuna, Spinach and Sweetcorn Pasta

I like the food I prepare for my little girl to be hassle free. This means quick to make, a version of what I am having and very little extra washing up. A lot of what I cook can be cooked in one pan, a little saucepan is perfect. After all the portion sizes are only small anyway, why use a big pan?

Tuna, Spinach and Sweetcorn Pasta 

This is a really simple and healthier baby version of tuna pasta. You'll need:

Small handful of Pasta (I used Fusilli)
Tbsp Sweetcorn
1/2 White Onion
Small handful Spinach
Tbsp Tuna
Black Pepper
Tbsp Half fat Creme Fraiche
Squeeze of Lemon Juice

In your pan place a little glug a Olive Oil, enough to fry the onions in. Finely chop your onion and gently fry in the oil. I love to use Onions to add a little sweet savoury flavour to anything I cook for her. When the onions are translucent and sweet spoon them onto a plate. In the same pan pour some hot water from the kettle and start to cook your pasta.

When your pasta is cooked, drain and mix in the Spinach. Whilst the pasta steams and lets go of any excess water it will gently cook the Spinach maximising the flavour and reducing vitamin loss. A couple of minutes later add the onions and sweetcorn to the pasta and season with Black Pepper. Next stir in your Creme Fraiche and a season with the Lemon Juice.

Allow to cool and serve, really easy, nutritious and delicious.
