ok, made this last night with mixed reviews. and i did change it up a bit to make it a healthier meal. used chicken instead of tuna, also about 1/2 cup of diced ham from a left over ham steak, DH isn't a big tuna fan, used skim milk,[plus part of a can of ff evaporated i had in the fridge 1 large bag of ff shredded cheese plus 4 slices of reg full fat cheese, the shredded was mild cheddar the full fat was montery, skipped the butter part and just mixed flour w/ a bit of the milk to thicken the cheese sauce, skipped the corn, added portabello mushrooms i had sauteed in a bit of butter and garlic, diced onions and red pepper, (along with the peas) added salt, pepper, garlic poweder and still this recipe did not have alot of flavor. oh increased the pasta to 8 oz vs half a cup. made enough to feed 6. i personally liked it, low fat comfort food but DH did not, he said not a whole lot of flavor which i had to agree with, i will make it again but i think the lack of umph if you will was the cheese i used, not that it was ff but it was mild cheddar and monteray jack, think the next time i will use a sharp ff cheddar and maybe some low fat swiss. any how i still gave it a 4 because i thought it was good even though it didn't pop my taste buds. oh also mine ended up being like 367 cal per serving and 8 grams of fat 4 of which were saturated.
