Cheesy Tuna, Broccoli & Pasta Bake

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (200g) Western Family rotini
  • 3 - 1/2 cups (250g) small broccoli florets
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter
  • 1/3 cup (40g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 - 1/2 cups (625 mL) 2% milk
  • 1 cup (250 mL) mature shredded cheddar
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) kosher salt
  • 170 g (1 can) Ocean's solid white tuna, drained
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced

Directions

1.Fill a large pot with generously salted water and bring it to boil. Add pasta, and cook according to the packet instructions. For the final 1 ½ minutes of cook time, add broccoli florets to the pot and cook with pasta until just tender.
2.Meanwhile, heat butter and flour in a saucepan over medium heat until mixture is just bubbling.  Slowly add in milk and whisk constantly until smooth and thickened to a roux.
3.Continue to cook roux for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly until it has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir in two-thirds of the cheese until melted. Season with kosher salt.
4.Preheat broiler to high.
5.Drain pasta and broccoli in a large colander and transfer to a shallow ovenproof dish. Flake tuna on top of the pasta and broccoli.
6.Pour cheese sauce over pasta mixture and top with sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
7.Place pasta bake under broiler for 4-5 minutes, or until the cheese melts and turns golden-brown. Serve immediately.

 

Tip: Make the pasta bake the night before and pop it into the oven for a quick, simple week night meal.
