  • Chef's Tips

    You can use gluten free pasta instead of regular pasta. Substitute the blue cheese with your favourite white cheese.

    1. In a large non-stick fry pan over medium high heat sauté onions, bacon, garlic and tomatoes for 7 - 9 minutes, until onions begin to soften.
    2. In a separate bowl combine, mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, lemon juice and chives.  Mix well and set aside.
    3. To blanch off the green beans, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, beans and cook for 3-4 minutes.  Drain, cool in cold water and set aside.
    4. In a large pot of boiling water cook pasta for 4-5 minutes and then drain the water.
    5. In the same pot add to the cooked pasta the tuna, bacon mixture, dill, green beans, and the blue cheese mixture and stir until well combined.
    6. Place on the centre of the plate and garnish with parmesan cheese.
