Creamed Tuna in Spaghetti Nest © 1945

8 ozs. spaghetti (Cook, without breaking, for 17 minutes in rapid boiling, salted water. Drain and arrange in nest on platter. While spaghetti cooks, prepare the following.)
2 tablespoons butter (Melt in heavy sauce pan.)
2 tablespoons flour (Blend into hot butter.)
1 1/2 cups milk (Add, stirring, and bring to a boil. Add seasonings.)
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Paprika (Add enough to give sauce a pink tone.)
1 cup cooked, green peas (Add.)
1 can tuna fish (Separate slightly with fork. Add to sauce, being careful not to break. Serves 6.)

VARIATION: For a handsome party dish mix the cooked spaghetti with minced pimiento and green pepper and form into a ring by shaping in a ring mold pan. To serve, turn onto chop plate, garnish with parsley and tomato wedges and fill the center with creamed tuna. Salmon may be used in place of tuna fish, if desired.
