Syns per serving 1
Ready in 1 hour
300g dried pasta bows
Low-calorie cooking spray
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dried red chilli flakes
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
10g fresh basil, leaves picked and half torn into small pieces
2 x 160g cans tuna in spring water, drained
20g fresh Parmesan, finely grated
1 Cook the pasta for 3 minutes less than the pack instructions. Drain well and set aside.
2 Meanwhile, spray a large, non-stick saucepan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-low heat. Fry the onion for 2 minutes. Add the garlic with a splash of water and cook gently for 5 minutes.
3 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Add the vinegar, chilli flakes, tomatoes and 300ml water to the pan, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the spinach and torn basil. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the spinach has wilted, then turn off the heat.
4 Stir through the pasta and tuna, and season to taste. Tip into a large baking dish and evenly scatter over the Parmesan. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until bubbling and golden. Scatter over the remaining basil leaves and divide between 4 plates or bowls to serve.

There is a huge list of Free Food to choose from, which doesn’t need to be weighed, calorie counted or measured.
You can also snack on these to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
In addition, you are encouraged to eat measured quantities of certain foods, known as ‘Healthy Extras’ that provide nutrients essential for a healthy, balanced diet.
These include milk and cheese (for calcium) and cereals and wholemeal bread (for fibre and minerals).
And so you never feel deprived you can enjoy limited amounts of treats which are higher-calorie, less filling foods that include chocolate, crisps and alcohol.
