A Main Meal
We were pretty concerned that #1 really really really only liked a beef sausage, some raw beans, half a raw carrot and maybe some mashed spuds. And tomato sauce/ketchup. A lot. A dietitian said, "He is eating, but try him on other foods to eat 'til the plates finished. If he goes to bed hungry after a few nights, it might sink in..." As the eldest of six, this sounded reasonable to me. But upset Tarn a lot. But persistence paid off, and so dinner preparation was finally much shorter with only one main course to do for four.
From the top of my head, here we go, for four people:
- Tuna 300-500 gm
- Onion diced finely
- Garlic clove, diced, minced
- Butter- a table spoon plus
- cheese a cup grated, parmesan or tasty, or both
- Milk half a cup
- Curry powder, 2-4 teaspoons
- Tomato or sweet chili sauce
- pasta 400gm: noodles, fettuccine, spirals or penne
- Boil up water for pasta and cook to aldenté
- Meanwhile heat the saucepan,
- Add pepper,
- Melt butter, then add onion and garlic and soften up
- Add flour, stir then slowly add milk, and stir all up to sauce like consistency on low heat.
- Add in tuna with or with liquid from the can- which can be water or oil
- Stir it all up, and add curry powder and other sauces like tomato or sweet chili
- Heat for 5 minutes and remove.
- Add cheese and stir.
- Place cooked pasta in a baking dish, and pour over the tuna mornay sauce.
- Spread some more grated cheese over that and top it off with bread crumbs.
- Bake in a moderate oven for 20 minutes (180°C or 350°F)
