Tuna macaroni bake
- 2 cups macaroni pasta (around 250g)
- 1 head broccoli, chopped
- 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3 cups warm milk
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- 185g can tuna in spring water, drained
- small handful basil, roughly chopped
- ¼ cup breadcrumbs
1 Cook the macaroni in a large pan of boiling salted water according to packet instructions, until al dente. Add the broccoli for the last 1 minute of cooking time. Drain and tip back into the pan.
2 Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually add the milk, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute, then remove the pan from the heat. Season with salt and pepper, then add half the cheese and stir to melt.
3 Preheat the grill. Toss the sauce through the drained pasta mixture with the tuna and basil. Tip into a shallow ovenproof dish and scatter over the breadcrumbs and remaining cheese. Grill for 5 minutes, or until golden and hot through.
