Imagine if you could come home from work (after picking up the kids from the afterschool program and/or daycare) and be able to have something nutritious and delicious to eat!
This recipe has it all! I made this tonight and it was good…really good! I made it differently then I have previously to see if I could make it in less than 30 minutes and not only was I able to accomplish that but I think this one is better than anything that I have made to date!
Homemade Tuna Helper
- 4 cups of water
- 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
- 4 cups of rotini pasta
- 1 tsp of Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp of black pepper
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp of garlic powder
- 1 cup of frozen green peas
- 1 tin of tuna
- 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (I just shred my own)
- In a large saucepan add water and can of soup set stove top to medium, mix until well incorporated.
- Add pasta, Italian seasoning, pepper, salt and garlic powder to the soup mixture.
- Allow mixture to come to boil, stir pasta, add peas and tuna.
- Lower heat to medium low.
- Place lid on top and let mixture simmer for 8 minutes while stirring occasionally.
- Set temperature to low and sprinkle cheese on top.
- Re-cover and wait for 1 minute.
I usually serve this with a side salad (as you can see). Other variations to this recipe are replacing the peas with frozen broccoli or frozen mixed vegetables. You could also replace the tuna with a tin of salmon (125g).
Or make it your own and please share your variations with me if you do. 🙂
Until next time.
