184g champignons
200 ml cream
1 dstsp tomato paste
1 large onion

Coarsely chop onion and slice champignons. Heat oil in a frypan and saute onion on low until transparent - about 5 minutes. Add champignons and continue cooking for 3 more minutes. Meanwhile, drain tuna well, then add to the pan and heat gently for another 2 minutes, turning carefully to keep the fish chunky. Add a little pepper if desired, then the tomato paste and cream.
