  1. Preheat the oven. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the sauce, melt the margarine/butter in a large saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook over a medium heat for 1 minute. Turn down the heat and add only as much milk as the mixture can absorb to make a slightly smoother paste. Work the paste to a smooth and glossy consistency before adding a little more milk. Repeat until the paste has a creamy consistency. Gradually stir in the remaining milk. Turn up the heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce develops a thicker consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the tuna, sweetcorn, cooked pasta and two thirds of the cheese. Check the seasoning and alter if necessary.
  4. Spoon the mix into an ovenproof dish. Top with the remaining cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
