Ingredients

1 box
Compliments Small Pasta Shells
12 ounces
Salt
3 tbsp
Compliments Butter
2 tbsp
Compliments Unbleached Flour
1 1/2 cups
Lucerne® Whole Milk, heated to steaming
1/2 pound

Method

Step 1
In a 5 to 6-quart pan, bring 3 quarts of salted water to a boil over high heat.
Step 2
Add pasta and cook until shells are tender to bite, about 12 minutes.
Step 3
Meanwhile, in a 3 to 4-quart pan, melt butter over medium high heat. Add flour and whisk constantly until smooth and bubbling, 1-2 minutes.
Step 4
Very gradually, add the hot milk, whisking constantly after each addition. Mixture will form a lumpy paste at first, but keep whisking vigorously until it is smooth. Whisk constantly until mixture bubbles and thickens, about 3 minutes.
Step 5
Remove sauce from heat and stir in cheese until smooth; keep warm.
Step 6
When pasta is done, drain shells well then return to pan. Add cheese sauce, tuna, and salt and pepper to taste; mix well, then serve
