    Heart Mac'n Cheese'n Tuna

    Mac'n Cheese'n Tuna

    Dinner
    Makes 4 Servings
    INGREDIENTS:
    1 can (6 oz.) Chunk White or Chunk Light Tuna in Water
    2 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)
    1 carton (7.25 oz.) macaroni and cheese mix
    1/4 cup margarine

    1/3 cup milk

    DIRECTIONS:
    Open tuna can, hold a small wire mesh strainer or colander over an empty sink, dump can of tuna into strainer, hold over sink until all of the liquid has drained. (To be sure all of the liquid has drained, gently press on tuna in strainer with the back of a spoon.) Place tuna in a bowl - separate into bite-size pieces with a fork. Toss with green onions, (if using) set aside. Bring water to boil in a large saucepan - stir in macaroni noodles, boil 7 to 9 minutes. Drain noodles thoroughly, but do not rinse. Return to saucepan, stir in margarine until barely melted. Sprinkle with cheese sauce packet, stir in milk until sauce is creamy. Gently stir in tuna mixture until evenly coated.

    My kids grew up on mac & cheese w/tuna. I also added a can of cream of mushroom soup with a little extra milk. I put crushed potato chips on top and baked at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 mins. Was very tasty with a tossed salad and hot bread.

    Thanks jkpjohnson. Let me know how you like it. Sometimes I added a can of drained green peas for color. Boys would start out picking them out but would give up and eat them anyway because they were hungry! (always hungry) You could probably use corn or green beans etc. A way to get veggies in them.
