Tuna and sweetcorn pasta – but not as you know it. I’ve purreed the sweetcorn and used taglierini to add a little more panache to this family favourite.

My version of a tuna & sweetcorn standard.

How Dad Cooked It

  1. Put the corn and crème fraîche in a mini-chopper and blitz. Alternatively chop the corn very finely.
  2. Chop the shallot and celery into fine dice and fry in the olive oil (without burning) on medium high heat for 5-10 minutes or until soft. Add the corn and crème fraîche either from the chopper or separately, the wine and stock and tarragon and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for 5-10 minutes. Break up the tuna and add to the sauce. Finally add the parsley and stir.
  3. Cook the pasta, timing things so the pasta can be taken from the pan and into the sauce without draining. Toss the pasta, adding more pasta water if needed. Season with salt, plenty of pepper and lemon.
  4. Serve with lemon wedges and a few kernels of corn as garnish.
