1 (7.25 ounce) package
macaroni and cheese dinner mix
margarine, cut into pieces
1 (6 ounce) can
tuna, drained and flaked
1 (4.5 ounce) can
sliced mushrooms, drained
This is a good, quick meal. I fixed this for my kids and now for the grand kids. The only thing I do differently is to use English peas instead of mushrooms
I wanted to make this tonight as a surprise for my husband because it was the first thing he cooked for me 25 years ago when we first met and started dating. He thinks this is what "sealed the deal" so to speak! lol I let him think that ;-)
This casserole is in the oven as I am writing this. I stole a little bit before I put it in the oven and it is AWESOME! OF course my husband's version is very straight forward. Blue box Kraft Mac and Cheese, 1 can tuna, a slice of Kraft Singles on the top (cut diagonally, because he's fancy) hahahaha Then baked. PERFECTION! lol Just between us though... This one is MUCH better! I did swap out the mushrooms for peas just because I was in the mood for peas, I also added in a little Dijon mustard, but that's it. Oh, and I still got Kraft Mac and cheese, but the fancier one that has the cheese sauce in it,( because I'M fancy! lol) unlike the orange powder (what IS that stuff anyway? )lol I love it and can't wait for my husband to get home so he can have it tonight. Thanks Melissa Loudy for posting this :-)
My kids requested this. Would make again easy.
This recipe tasted better than it sounded. I Replaced the mushrooms with broccoli and used garlic and herb bread crumbs.
I made this recipe for my husband as I am not a fan of hot tuna. He really enjoyed this dish. I did sub frozen peas for the mushrooms as he does not care for them. It did stay nice and creamy while baking and that was a plus. I also made this for the AR August Faceless Recipes on Pinterest.
