   Cook the pasta for 5 minutes in boiling water or until just tender. Drain
   and place in a large bowl. Mix in the sweetcorn, frozen peas, undiluted
   soup and 1 Tablespoon of the chives.
   Spoon half the pasta mixture into a large oven-proof dish. Spread half the
   tuna and tomatoes over the top. Cover with the remaining pasta mixture,
   tuna and tomatoes.
   Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 10 inch square. Mix
   together the anchovies and puree and spread over the pastry to within 1
   inch.
   Dampen the pastry edges, roll up like a swiss roll and cut into 16 rounds
   using a small sharp knife. Place on a baking sheet amd press down to
   flatten slightly.
   Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
   Scatter the grated cheddar cheese over the pasta mix and bake for 30
   minutes.
   Increase the oven temperature to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6 and place the
   spirals in the oven. Bake with the pasta for 15 minutes until spirals are
   golden brown and pasta bake is hot and bubbling.
   Arrange the spirals around the top of the pasta bake and scatter over the
   remaining chives. Serve at once.
