Tuna pasta bake

4 people
What you'll need
  • 600g small pasta shapes
  • 50g butter
  • 50g plain flour
  • 600ml milk
  • 250g strong cheddar, grated
  • 2 x 160g cans tuna steak
  • Spring water, drained
  • 330g can sweetcorn, drained
Cooking directions
1.

Heat oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4. Boil the pasta for two minutes less than the time it dictates on the pack.

2.

To make the sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour. Cook for one minute. 

3.

Then, gradually stir in the milk to make a thick white sauce. Remove from the heat and stir in all but a handful of cheese.

4.

Drain the pasta and mix with the white sauce, tuna, sweetcorn, then season. 

5.

Transfer to a baking dish and top with the rest of the grated cheese. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until the cheese on top is golden and starting to brown.
