I made this Cheesy Tuna and Pasta recipe again this week. It is one of those meals that I used to make regularly, and then I kind of forgot about it. It was like finding a $10 bill in a jeans pocket! The family loves this quick meal, and it’s oh so easy to put together last minute. I first shared this recipe five years ago, and I’m guessing you forgot about it too. Oh look at Joy. She’s so little!!!!! I love it when the kids ask me what I’m cooking for supper, and after I answer they shout, “Yea!” It’s just more fun to cook food that everyone loves. I’ve told you before that it’s getting harder and harder to find meals that all seven in our family like. It seems like there always has to be one that doesn’t like a meal. Sigh. This recipe, however, is always a kid pleaser!
There aren’t very many ingredients, and all are things that I keep stocked in my kitchen so it’s an easy, quick meal to fix on one of those days when I have to have supper ready in thirty minutes, and I didn’t do any planning ahead!
1 pound of pasta
8 oz of Velveeta
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup milk
2 cans (7 oz each) Tuna
Cook the pasta according to package directions. I like my pasta al dente! While the pasta is cooking melt the Velveeta in a large (4qt) skillet (If you don’t have a skillet this big you can always mix the pasta and sauce in the pot used to boil the pasta.) over medium low heat Then add the milk and Parmesan cheese.
Next add the drained tuna. When the pasta is done, drain and add to the cheese sauce. Sprinkle with freshly grated pepper, and serve immediately.
What is your go-to pantry stocked quick meal that the kids love? Please share!!!
This dish is one of my favorite “comfort” foods = )
My husband’s is a casserole made of elbow macaroni, velveeta cheese, onion, and hamburger ~ yum!!
We make this all the time, our favorite family dinner! :)Although, we usually use plain ol’ mac’n’cheese….We’ll have to try it with shell noodles..and velveeta! Yum! 🙂
Yum! I was just wishing for this and it’s something I’ve never made for my family.
This sounds delicious. I usually use cream of mushroom soup instead of velveeta in my tuna noodle casserole, but I like how this is sort of a cross between mac and cheese and tuna noodle casserole.
Tuna casserole is one of our favorite meals too. We add mushroom soup in addition to cheese, since it adds flavor and makes it nice and creamy.
As for cooking, we’re up to 10 now and I absolutely can’t think of ANYTHING to cook. I think I’ll just serve bread and water- then they’ll be thankful next time I cook!
