Tuna pasta and sweetcorn are a combination that I have always loved.

And, it used to be my go to meal that I would throw together after a long day at work. It was quick to put together, tasty and filling.

However, it was overly heavy on the carbs, with too much pasta added, and as for the half bottle of full fat mayonnaise I used to add. Oh dear……..
