Recipe: Jalapeno Tuna Macaroni and Cheese
Summary: Trick up the blue box macaroni and cheese with extra cheese and Jalapeno tuna for an addicting speed-scratch version perfect for lunch or weekday supper.
- Bring 6 cups water to a boil in a medium-sized saucepot. Stir in macaroni from package and cook 8-9 minutes, until just tender, stirring occasionally so the pasta doesn’t stick to the pot.
- Remove from heat, drain in a colander and return hot pasta to the pot. Add butter, put lid on and wait for a minute until butter melts. Add milk, contents of cheese packet and shredded cheese and stir gently until cheese melts.
- Add tuna and its oil, stir a couple of rounds very gently to mix, but not break the tuna into smithereens. Portion into bowls and dig in!
- Serves 3.
