Lemony Broccoli and Tuna Pasta

sometimes (and especially after holidays, weddings and honeymoons)…. you need to eat a little bit healthier… just sometimes


In reality, this is a combination of using a few basic ingredients to create something tasty and filling (while it is also light and healthy)… and for those who follow Weight Watchers (it is makes 4 portions of 12 Propoints each)…a definite make again kind of meal, especially since it is ready in 2tics (translation: 2tics = quickly :))

I found the recipe on the BBC Good Food Website as I did my search on *broccoli* – especially since HIM had done a shop recently and our fridge was groaning with vegetables and I truly needed some inspiration. I omitted the capers and olives as neither of these are my favourites – but feel free to throw them in if you like…
