Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
TUNA SHELL BAKE
1 tbls olive oil
1 lrg yellow onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 carrot, peeled and chopped fine
1 stalk celery, chopped fine
1 (smallish) sweet red pepper, chopped fine
1/2 tsp EACH dried basil, marjoram and rosemary, crumbled
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 c. dry white wine
2 tbls flour
1-3/4 c. low sodium chicken broth
6 oz med size pasta shells
6.5 oz can water packed light tuna, drained and flaked
3 tbls grated parmesan cheese
1 tbls lemon juice
1/4 c. minced parsley
Heat olive oil in lrg skillet over med heat. Add the onion, garlic,
carrot, celery, red pepper, spices and black pepper. Cook uncovered,
stirring occasionally, til veggies are soft - 5-8 min.
Add the wine to skillet and boil uncovered for 3 min. Place flour in
small bowl and add enough of the chicken broth, a tbls at a time, to
make a smooth paste. Blend in (I use whisk) the rest of the chicken
broth and add mixture to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly til
slightly thickened, about 3 min. Lower the heat so that mixture
bubbles gently, cover and simmer for 8 min or til sauce has thickened.
Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 deg. Cook the pasta shells according
to pkg directions. Drain well and place in ungreased 2-1/2 qt
casserole. Add the Tuna but do not mix.
Stir the cheese, lemon juice and half the parsley into the sauce.
Pour over the tuna and pasta shells and toss well to mix. Cover and
bake for 20 min. Sprinkle with remaining parsley and serve.
