Baked tuna & sweetcorn pasta

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Heat the butter in a heavy-bottomed pot and gently sauté the onion, celery and garlic until tender, regularly stirring.
  • Add the corn and stir well.
  • Then add the flour, mix well and cook for a few minutes, regularly stirring.
  • Add the hot milk all at once and whisk well. Gently cook for about 5-10 mins until thickened.
  • Then add a good handful of grated cheese and seasonings. Whisk and briefly cook.
  • Add the cooked pasta, stir well and turn off the heat.
  • Then add the parsley and tuna. Gently toss and transfer the mixture to a large gratin (or any ovenproof dish). Sprinkle more grated cheese on top, if you like, and cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins until golden brown and bubbling.
  • Serve with a simple salad on the side.
