Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C (400 F). Spray a 9x13 baking dish with olive oil.
  2. Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until just tender. Drain and add pasta to the baking dish.
  3. Add the tuna, corn, cheese pasta sauce and mix together well. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
  4. Spread the mixture out evenly and sprinkle the shredded cheese on the top, use as much cheese as you like.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly.
  6. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

The cheese sauce, in Thailand, is available from Lazada if you reside outside of a major city, cost is 178 Baht for a jar, which is not bad, it is a very good sauce. The Cheddar cheese will use 1/2 of a 200 gram block, about 90 Baht for that. For 6 servings, this is about $1.40 per serving.

Shortcuts: Fresh Tuna, Fresh Corn (Pressure Cooker).

Variants: 1. Use peas in place of the corn. 2. Use the higher quantities of Cheddar and tuna (highly recommended). 3. Add some sauteed onions. 4. Add some sauteed diced red bell pepper.

Instructions
  1. Core and chop the apple. I use an apple corer and slicer that removes the core and makes 8 slices. I took each slice, slice it again lengthwise, then chopped. Add the lime or lemon juice at this time to prevent the chopped pieces from turning brown.
  2. Toast the nuts, your choice of almonds or walnuts, these are optional. Omit for any health concerns.
  3. Drain the tuna well or prepare fresh cooked tuna and let that drain after you have removed the bones and flaked it. If using fresh tuna, use 2 cups or 2 1/2 cups. Three cans of tuna (140 grams each), the onion, and apple with lime juice ready for mixing.
  4. Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix to combine, taste and adjust mayo, pepper, and lemon/lime juice to your liking. Mixed and ready to chill, no nuts or avocado used this time.
  5. Cover and chill for a few hours, serve in sandwiches or as a dip.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 42 Baht per average size can of tuna, for 8 servings, this is about 66 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Tuna.

Variant: 1. Replace the tuna with 2 cups of cooked, chopped chicken. 2. Use a red onion in place of the brown onion. 3. Use a Fuji apple in place of the Granny Smith apple.

This sounds really good, and is a modified recipe based on making the mac & cheese from scratch instead of boxed. This seems like a long winded recipe, just read through it, it is not that bad, the homemade part takes a bit more but the results will be much better. On my to cook list for sure.

Instructions
  1. Heat a pot of salted water to boiling then cook the pasta until just tender, drain and set aside.
  2. While the water is heating for the pasta and for the pasta to cook, go ahead and heat a large non stick pan then add the bell peppers, onion, and ground beef, when the beef is good and browned, drain, then mix in the taco seasoning and add the drained tuna and mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are wilted and softened. Remove from heat and mix into the drained pasta, set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, warm the milk until it is simmering then set it aside.
  4. In a large heavy-bottomed stock pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, whisk in the flour and cook the mixture, whisking constantly, until it turns light brown in color and has a slightly toasted aroma, about 3 minutes. Whisk in the dry mustard.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat then slowly whisk the warm milk into the flour mixture. Continue whisking constantly to avoid any lumps. (The mixture will become very thick and then thin out gradually until it is smooth.)
  6. Return the pot to the stove over medium-high heat and cook the mixture while whisking constantly until it has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste and reduce the heat to medium. Whisk in the Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses until they are melted and the cheese sauce is smooth.
  7. Add the pasta mixture to the cheese sauce and stir to mix together and heat to warm everything through, serve.
Recipe Notes

I will price this after I make it, but for now will say low cost.

Instructions
  1. Cut fish into 1 inch cubes. Place in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and transfer to freezer. Chill until very cold (it should feel firm but still give when pressed with your finger), about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, sterilize all grinding parts (the stand mixer's grinding attachment, including the dies, or the bowl and blade of the food processor), rinse, dry, and place in the freezer until very cold, at least 15 minutes. Assemble grinder attachment with chilled coarse die. Set a bowl in a large bowl of ice, arrange beneath the attachment to catch ground tuna and keep it cold.
  3. Combine tuna, scallions, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl. Grind mixture in batches, with mixer on medium speed, and plunge gently to press through grinder. Add mayonnaise, grapeseed or olive oil, and toasted sesame oil to ground tuna mixture. Mix gently just to combine.
  4. Form into four 1/2 in thick patties. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper as desired. Grill or pan fry burgers over medium heat until just cooked through, 3-4 minutes per side.
  5. Split and toast the rolls. Assemble with lettuce leaves on the bottom of the roll, top that with a tuna burger, then some tartar sauce, then sliced tomato. Top with the other half of the roll, enjoy.

I cannot price this until I get some fresh tuna, or catch my own.
