    Serves: 6 

    • 1/2 cup (70g) uncooked spiral pasta
    • 20g butter or margarine
    • 2 tablespoons plain flour
    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) milk
    • 2 cups (230g) grated cheddar cheese
    • 1 cup (185g) frozen green peas

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain.
    2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour until smooth. Gradually mix in milk so that no lumps form. Stir constantly until the mixture boils, then mix in half of the cheese. Add the peas, corn and pasta. Drain the tuna, leaving a small amount of liquid to keep it moist. Flake with a fork and stir into the cheese mixture. Transfer to a casserole dish and top with the remaining cheese. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over the cheese.
    3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until sauce is bubbly and cheese is browned.
