Ingredients

    1 can (6 1/2 to 7 oz) tuna, drained
    8 ounces elbow macaroni
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 finely chopped onion
    2 tbsp finely chopped green pepper
    2 tbsp all purpose flour
    3/4 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp pepper
    1 cup skim milk
    1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
    1 can cream of celery soup
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

Cook macaroni until tender, rinse and drain. Set aside.
Melt butter (1/4 cup) in a large saucepan or Dutch oven; add chopped onions and bell pepper and saute over low heat for about 2 to 3 minutes, until onion is tender. Add flour, salt and pepper; stir until smooth. Add milk and cream of celery soup and stir over low heat until smooth and thickened. Add cooked macaroni, flaked tuna, peas and half of the cheese (1/2 cup) to sauce mixture, stirring constantly.
