Gourmet Tuna Salad in Under 20 Minutes

I’m busy, busy, busy, and as the weather cools down, warm meals are on the mind!  So tonight I whipped up a quick, simple, and satisfying warm tuna salad made with Annie’s Homegrown White Cheddar Mac N’ Cheese as the base.  Recipe serves two.

Ingredients:

1 package Annie’s White Cheddar Mac N’ Cheese

1/4 C milk (box calls for 3 Tbsp., but I used a little more so that it was more saucey and covered the tuna and tomatoes)*

1 Tbsp. butter (can omit if desired, but I like it a little creamier)*

1 large tomato, diced

fresh dill, chopped (as desired, I used about 1 tsp./serving at least)

5-6 stone ground whole wheat crackers, crushed into crumbs

1 small package tuna, drained

Directions:

Prepare mac n’ cheese as directed on package.*  While the pasta is cooking, dice tomato, chop dill, and crush crackers. Mix half of the dill in with the tuna, reserving the rest for topping.  After the mac n’ cheese is totally prepared, add tuna and tomatoes, and top with breadcrumbs and dill.  Enjoy!  Tastes fabulous with hot sauce 😉
