      1/2  Recipe        linguine
                         made in pasta machine
                         (about 3-4 cups uncooked)
    2      Cans          white tuna in water
    1 1/2  Cups          frozen broccoli/carrot vegetable mix
 
 Bring water for pasta to a boil.   Meanwhile, bring milk, broth, garlic,
 bay
 leaf, thyme and pepper to a boil.  Remove from heat. Cover and let stand
 for
 15 minutes.  Remove bay leaf.
 
 Melt margarine in saucepan.  Stir in flour; cook, stirring constantly,
 until
 mixture is bubbly; about 1 minute.  Add milk mixture, whisking
 constantly.
  Remove from heat.  Cover and let stand for 2 minutes.
 
 Return pan to medium high heat and bring to a boil, whisking constantly.
  Reduce heat to medium low.  Simmer, stirring often, until sauce has
 thickened and is smooth, about 8 to 10 minutes. (I added a bit of Wondra
 flour to this to thicken it a bit more, but be careful not to get it too
 thick.) While sauce is simmering, cook pasta in boiling water; drain.
 
 Microwave vegetables until just tender.  Chop into small pieces.
 
 Add tuna and vegetables to sauce and mix.  Carefully fold in cooked
 pasta.
