This is a failsafe recipe, adding simple vegetables and tinned tuna.

Recipe By: midnight kitchen (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/111)
Serves 2 Cook: 15 min Nutrition: 500 cals

Ingredients

Pasta 200g
Chinese leaves bunch 1/4
Flour 1 heaped tbsp
Vegetable stock granules 1 tbsp
Milk 200ml
Tinned tuna 1
Salt & pepper as you like

Method

1
Cut the Chinese leaves into fine strips and put in a pan to steam fry on medium heat with the lid on - you don't need any oil.
2
When softened, add the flour and coat well before adding the stock granules. Start cooking the pasta in another pan.
3
Add the milk to the Chinese leaves and simmer on medium heat, stirring all the while.
4
If you cook the pasta al dente, the sauce will be ready at the same time. Add the pasta to the sauce with the flaked tuna and transfer to a serving dish. Season with salt & pepper before serving.

Tips & Note

You can make a smooth creamy sauce without lumps this way because you're adding the flour into the vegetables and simmering with the milk. This is a quick 15 minute recipe from when you start boiling the water for the pasta. You could add some cheese into the white sauce to give a deeper flavour if you like.
