INFO & TIPS
- You may substitute tuna with 1 cup (or more) chopped polony
- You may also serve it in a dish with melted cheese on top ( dont leave it too long in the oven otherwise the pasta may dry up)
- What i do if i dont want to use the oven, after i mixed everything up, i switch off the stove, grate some cheese on top of the pasta (preferably mozarella), close the lid and leave it to melt with the heat of the pot.
