What you'll need
  • 600g pasta
  • 50g butter
  • 50g plain flour
  • 600ml milk
  • 250g strong cheddar
  • 2 x 160g cans tuna
  • 330g can sweetcorn
Step 1.

Heat the 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.

Step 2.

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

Step 3.

Then, gradually stir in the milk to make a thick white sauce. Remove from the heat.


Grate the cheese and sprinkle all but a handful into the sauce.

Step 4.

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

Step 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.
