Adieha's Tuna and Pasta Bake 2.0

Sebelum ni saya dan penah share recipe Tuna and Pasta Bake, tp mase tu baru aje nak try2, so buat dalam kuantiti yg sket. Kali ni buat double the recipe dan ingredients pon berbeza sket. sy tak letak cheese, tp letak breadcrumbs. kalo ade cheese mesti lg sedap kan? :D




This recipe serves 5-10 people

Ingredients
about 250g macaroni pasta
1 packet of Maggi Cream of mushroom soup (powder)
400 ml of Milk
350 ml of Water
1 can tuna fish in water, drained and flaked
1/2 small can of sweet corn (or mixed veggie)
5 pcs of button mushroom, cut into 8
1 onion, finely chopped
1 red chilli, seeded, and finely chopped (optional)
bread crumbs
cheese for topping (optional)
salt, cayenne powder and freshly ground black pepper
olive oil
*Notes:
- The whole dish can be assembled, covered, and refrigerated several hours in advance. Remove the dish from the refrigerator at least 10 minutes before cooking.
- For kid-friendly dish, u don't need to put cayenne powder or even red chillis

Directions
1. Bring a medium size saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta, stir, and cook for 2 minutes less than the time on the package instructions.
2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C) ..or.. u can just use a microwave. Butter your ovenproof (or microwaveble friendly) casserole.
3. Drain the pasta. Saute your onions with olive oil until soften. Add water, milk and mushroom soup powder. Mix it well and simmer over low heat. Add the tuna, corn, button mushroom and mix well. Stir in the cooked pasta. Season with salt, cayenne powder and pepper.
4. Spread the mixture in the casserole. Sprinkle with half of the cheese and breadcrumbs. Mixed them in. Sprinkle the remaining cheese and breadcrumbs as topping. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Serve hot.

Variation...

Chicken and Pasta Bake
Replace the tuna with 7oz (200g) cooked chicken breasts, chopped and mixed in before the cooked pasta.

*Notes:
- Good with hot garlic bread and a green salad on the side.
- Leftovers can be reheated. If the sauce has thickened, thin with a little extra milk
