Recipe Directions for Tuna Mornay Pasta Bake

  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions. Drain.

  2. Meanwhile, place the bread in the bowl of a food processor and process until coarsely chopped.

  3. 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.
