    1. 1
      Place the butter in a preheated saucepan and melt the butter down (on low heat).
    2. 2
      Once the butter is melted down add the plain flour.
    3. 3
      Stir well and cook the mixture of butter and plain flour which should go a bit lumpy and dry at this stage.
    4. 4
      Very important that you cook this well (2-4 minutes).
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and slowly, very slowly add the milk and stir.
    6. 6
      The sauce should now be getting smooth.
    7. 7
      If it is lumpy you have been adding the milk to fast.
    8. 8
      Keep adding the milk until the desired thickness is achieved.
    9. 9
      Add the paprika and lemon juice for a bit of extra kick.
    10. 10
      Add the cheese slowly and stir in so that you can not see any grated cheese in the dish.
    11. 11
      Any other herbs for a bit of extra taste.
    12. 12
      Add the tuna and let it sit on low heat for 5 minutes lightly stirring every minute or so.
    13. 13
      Garnish with some parsley.

      Very good and something different. My 3 yr old helped me and poured a lot of paprika. way over the amount indicated. It still tasted great. Like a glorified "Creamed Tuna". Served it over rice, even the kids loved it..

      This was a nice, quick dinner...I was done preparing it in 20 minutes (the time it took to boil the pasta I served it with). I used cheddar cheese, but I'd bet it doesn't matter much which kind you use. It's a good weeknight recipe, when you're too tired to make anything fancy but want a real meal. Thanks for posting!
