Step 1

Cook the pasta per the packet instructions. Add the oil to a frying pan, finely slice the onion and add to the oil and lightly fry.

Step 2

Drain the tuna and flake into a bowl. Add the sweetcorn and peas (if using them), the lemon juice and the onion to the tuna. Cover and set aside.

Step 3

Place the milk, flour and butter in a saucepan and continually whisk until it all mixes and thickens. Cook for 2minutes. Add the mustard and 3/4 of the cheese and mix well.

Step 4

Drain the pasta and add to the tuna mix and then into the sauce, mix well. Place in an oven proof dish, cover with the remainder of the cheese and cook for 25minutes.


This also works using salmon and trout.
