  • 175 g macaroni
  • 300 ml skimmed milk
  • 15 g corn flour mixed with 2 tbsp. cold water
  • 185 g can of tuna in spring water drained
  • 120 g frozen peas
  • 75 g low fat grated cheddar cheese


  • Pre-heat oven to 180Fan.
  • Cook the macaroni in boiling, salter water for about 8 minutes until slightly tender and then drain.
  • Whilst the macaroni is cooking add the milk and corn flour mixture into a medium sized saucepan. Bring the mixture to the boil, then turn it down to simmer whilst you stir it constantly with a wooden spoon to make a white sauce.
  • Once the sauce has thickened add the drained macaroni, tuna and peas and combine well together.
  • Pour the contents of the saucepan into an oven proof dish, sprinkle with the cheese and place onto the middle shelf of your oven.
  • Bake for approximately 15 – 20 minutes until the cheese has browned slightly and is bubbling.
