Yum : Tuna Mornay Pasta Bake

Cover-medium1 I made this recipe on Sunday night from my new Thermomix book – Cooking for Your Baby & Toddler.  It has so many great family recipes and this one will be added to my ‘regular’ list.

Tuna Mornay Pasta Bake

  • 50 g Parmesan cheese – grated
  • 2 slices (80 g) bread – grated/blended
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 700 g water
  • 200 g small pasta shells
  • 1 quantity Cheesy Bechamel Sauce (see below)
  • 425 g tinned tuna – drained and flaked
  • 150 g frozen peas

Cheesy Bechamel Sauce

  • 30 g butter
  • 40 g plain flour
  • 460 ml milk
  • 60 g cheddar cheese – grated


  • Preheat oven to 200ºC
  • Make Cheesy Bechamel Sauce by melting butter and adding the plain flour to make a roux
  • Cook on low until slightly coloured.  Add milk and cheese and whisk until smooth
  • Combine your breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese for your topping and set aside
  • Cook pasta in boiling water until al-dente
  • Pour Cheesy Bechamel Sauce over the pasta
  • Add tuna, peas and parmesan cheese and stir to combine
  • Spoon into a casserole dish and top with breadcrumb mixture
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Ps – I have converted this to suit stove-top instructions so I hope it makes sense?

    I’ve never had sore ears from carrying a Turtle Seashore product for too lengthy,
    and the Z60 feels simply as snug as the remainder.
