          2. Drain the tuna, flake and set aside.
          3. Peel and finely chop the onion. Melt 25g margarine in a frying pan and fry the onion gently until soft without colouring.
          4. Peel the tomato by cutting a large cross in the skin and standing in boiling water for 1 minute. The skin should then come away easily. Cut the tomato in half and carefully remove all the seeds.

          6. To make the sauce, melt the remaining margarine (50g) in a pan. Remove from the heat, stir in the flour and whisk in the formula milk. Return to the heat, stirring constantly until boiling and simmer gently for 1 minute. Add the dairy-free soya-free cheese and continue to stir until melted.
          7. Combine the pasta with the sauce, then top Wheat and gluten-free pastas based on rice, millet, corn and other suitable grains can be used in this recipe. Take care not to overcook them – follow the instructions carefully.
