Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 box italian chef macaroni & cheese dinner (I guess most any kind will do, that's what I get for cheap)

    2 cups frozen peas

    2 cans tuna (5.0 oz each)

    6 oz cheddar cheese

Directions

Cook the macaroni and cheese as directed on box, the butter and milk go with the cheese powder after draining the noodles.

Cook the frozen peas while the macaroni is boiling (I microwave mine for 3 minutes)

Add the cooked peas and two cans of tuna to the finished macaroni and cheese, don't drain the tuna to keep the flavor and moisture. Mix well.

Add 1oz. Cheddar cheese on top of a serving when heating up for lunch or dinner for a super cheesey flavor. Yummy!

Serving Size: makes 6 1-cup servings
