Cheesy Tuna Noodle Bake
Healthy Exchanges Cookbook p.167
I took two of my favorite "comfort dishes" (aren't they yours, too?), threw them together, and came up with a new "comfort dish" that is out of this world.
3 cups cooked noodles, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen peas
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can Campbell's Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 (6-ounce) can tuna, packed in water, drained and flaked
1 scant cup (3 3/4 ounces) Kraft shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine noodles, peas, onion flakes, and mushroom soup. Add tuna, Cheddar cheese, mustard, and black pepper. Pour into an 8-by-8-inch baking dish sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 5 minutes.
Hint: 2 2/3 cups uncooked noodles usually make 3 cups cooked.
