800kg MAGGI® Rich & Rustic Sauce

150g sweetcorn, salt free, drained weight

500g Tuna flakes in spring water, drained

METHOD

Prep: 25 minutes. Cook: 20 minutes.

  1. Bring a pot of water to the boil and add the pasta.
  2. Shave 2 minutes off the cooking time stated on pack instructions so the shells are still al dente. Drain the cooked pasta and refresh with cold water.

  4. Put 375ml water in a pan and heat until boiling. Whisk the béchamel powder into the cold water until smooth, then pour into the boiling water and return to the boil, stirring continuously for 1 minute.
  5. Add the cheese and stir until melted and smooth.
  6. Ladle the cheese sauce over the tuna and pasta mix and top with the MAGGI Crunchy Bake.
  7. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 190°C/ 375°F/ Gas Mark 5 for 20 to 25 minutes.
