We Answered:Tuna mornay pasta bake
Ingredients (serves 6)
300g dried fusilli pasta
2 thick slices day-old white bread, crusts removed, coarsely torn
2 tbs plain flour
500ml (2 cups) milk
120g (11/2 cups) coarsely grated cheddar
1 x 425g can tuna in brine, drained, flaked

Preheat oven to 180Â°C. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions. Drain.
Meanwhile, place the bread in the bowl of a food processor and process until coarsely chopped.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until foaming. Remove from heat. Gradually add the milk and place over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens. Reduce heat to low and cook for 2 minutes. Add 80g (1 cup) of cheddar and stir until melted.
Add the cheddar mixture, tuna and peas to the pasta and stir until well combined. Spoon the pasta mixture into a 2L (8-cup) capacity ovenproof dish. Combine the breadcrumbs and remaining cheddar in a bowl. Sprinkle over the pasta mixture. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve.

Try Aglio e olio.
Its a simple garlic and chilli pasta. You have to use very good quality olive oil to make the dish stand out and taste good.
- 5 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 tsp Chilli flakes (or good quality dried mini chillis, chopped)
- 5 cloves Garlic, minced
- shaved aged parmesan
- spaghetti for 2 people.
- Boil spaghetti until al dente. Drain, set aside.
- In a shallow pan, add olive oil and heat until oil crackles when you test-dip with garlic.
- Toss in garlic, cook for 3 - 5 min till fragrant.
- Add chilli flakes. Stir for 1 min.
- Add in spaghetti.
- Toss in medium heat.
- Add salt and pepper, top with shaved parm.
You can add garlic prawns to it for a more gourmet touch.
- 5 - 6 raw prawns
- 3 cloves garlic, smashed
- 4 - 6 tbsp olive oil
- Prepare raw prawns by de-veining it (or ask the butcher/deli guy to do it for you). De vein it by slitting the grey line over the top of the prawn (its the intestines and yucky stuff) and pulling/scraping it out.
- Butterfly the prawns by just making a deeper incision where you have de-veined the prawn, but not yet cutting it into half.
- Add olive oil.
- Add garlic, let garlic cook until slightly browned.
- Add prawns.
- Prawns should 'butterfly' open when cooking.
- Take off when prawns become slightly translucent and orange.
This takes only a min or less.
- Set aside.
- Toss into spaghetti. Feel free to add 1 or 2 tsp of the garlic oil from the prawns over the spaghetti or use it to make a dotted pattern on the plate.
