Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Yields: 6 serves
200g wheat or gluten free pasta
2½ tbsp (50g) butter
1 diced brown onion (160g)
¼ cup (35g) plain flour or gluten free plain flour
2½ cups (625mL) full cream milk
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 cup (110g) grated tasty cheese, plus extra ¼ cup (30g) for the top
4 scoops (160g) AdVital
1 cup (120g) mixed vegetables (canned or frozen), drained
425g tin tuna in brine or water, drained
Salt and pepper, to taste
1Preheat oven to 180°C conventional/160°C fan forced. Grease one medium-sized oven proof casserole or baking dish, or 6 individual 1-cup (250mL) oven proof ramekins.
2Cook the pasta to packet directions and drain.
3In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter and add the onion. Sauté gently until soft.
4Sprinkle in the flour and stir to coat the onion well.
5Pour in ½ cup milk and stir until it is all incorporated and starting to form a thick, smooth sauce. Add another half a cup and repeat. Add the remaining milk and cook for 1 minute more, stirring.
6Remove the sauce from the heat and add in the mustard, cheese and AdVital. Stir until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.
7In a large bowl gently combine the cooked pasta and vegetables. Add the tuna, breaking up any large lumps, and fold in gently to avoid it becoming mushy. Fold through the sauce and season the mixture to taste with salt and pepper.
8Transfer the mixture into the baking dish or divide between the ramekins.
9Top with the cheese and bake for 25 minutes or until golden.
