Homemade Mac N Cheese with Tuna

Submitted by: COWGIRLUPINOK

Introduction

This is a simple mac and cheese recipe my mother used to make with a can of tuna added in for protein with small calorie addition. You can leave the rotel out if you choose to or place mild rotel in it. This is delicious. You can also leave the cream of mushroom soup out if you choose but I have found it gives the added feeling of "sticking to the ribs" so I don't feel hungry for awhile after eating it.

  • Make your own cheese sauce or white sauce to substitute for the store bought soup lowers the sodium. Velveeta goes over great with the kids here! - 10/20/10
