Cauliflower, Kale and Tuna Pasta Bake

Hello everyone, Thanks for checking my blog out today.

This is a quick meal I rustled up after work. To be honest it does require a bit of effort to prepare but once its in the oven you can relax or get on with other things. I love adding as much vegetables to my meals as possible, especially pasta. As you can tell from the ingredients, I literally just added things here and then so the measurements aren’t that precise but you get the idea, as long as you have enough sauce to cover the filling, it should be fine. Also, it’s nice when you have extra food leftover for the next day’s work lunch or a portion to freeze for next weeks dinner which I’ll be doing. I even added a bit of nutritional yeast for that B12 which helps with DNA production, a healthy nervous system and the creation of red blood cells.
