Tuna Pasta Bake – GF & DF

You will need:

– 1 packet pasta of choice (I used GF spirals from @pastaromaau)
– Olive oil
– 3 heaped tbsp buckwheat flour
– 1.5 cups almond milk or milk of choice
– 1 tbsp mustard
– 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
– Salt & pepper
– 1 carrot, grated
– 2 handfuls chopped spinach
– 1 handful chopped shallots
– 1 large tin of tuna or 4-5 small tins (I used a mix of small tins, spring water, olive oil & chilli) 

METHOD
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C 
  2. Begin by grating the carrot & chopping the spinach and shallots, set aside. 
  3. Now, cook the pasta as per packet instructions.
  4. Whilst the pasta is cooking, start making your sauce by heating 3 tbsp of olive oil on a pan. Once hot add 3 tbsp of buckwheat flour and whisk with a fork until combined. Turn the heat down to medium and add the almond milk and mustard, whisk to combine. Add the nutritional yeast & whisk. Take the pan off the heat and let it sit. 
  5. Drain the cooked pasta and add it to a baking dish with the chopped veggies. 
  6. Add the tuna and then mix through the sauce. 
  7. Top with extra shallots & nutritional yeast. 
  8. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 mins until browned on top.
  9. Serve alone or with a side salad!
