Macaroni and Cheese Feast

Turn a regular box macaroni into a feast!

Cook one or two boxes of Kraft macaroni or store brand macaroni and cheese. Add one to two cans of water packed tuna, drained, and 1/2 to one cup of frozen mixed veggies (thawed of course). Add salt and pepper and you're done.

I like to pour boiling water over the frozen veggies in a colander in the sink while water is boiling for the macaroni, then thrown the veggies in while the macaroni is cooking. Cook as directed on box, drain all and throw in margarine, or not if you want to lose some fat in the recipe. It creates a little creamier product when you are done, but doesn't change the taste much.

Great way to get your kids to eat tuna and their vegies! Can also be made with leftover chicken, roast beef, etc and whatever left over vegies you have. If using leftovers, warm some in microwave and add the drained pasta instead.

Don't forget the cheese! Add a little bit of shredded cheese you might have in the fridge. Couple of tablespoons will do just fine.if you don't have it, leave it out! :)

Good idea for a one-pot meal. I'll have to try it. To make boxed mac & cheese richer, I will add a slice or two of American cheese; just tear it up and stir in. It might need a splash more of milk, too.
