Tuna Casserole- Light!

Submitted by: TIANNADJ

Introduction

Prepare pasta as directed.Place cooked pasta in a bowl (Don't strain completely.) and add 3 TBSP of lite margarine and stir so that it doesn't get sticky.
At the same time, in a small saucepan combine cream of chicken and about a cup of milk on a low heat. You may choose to crack some pepper into this. Slowly add about 1/3 to half the mozzarella into the warm saucepan. HINT: A trick here to not get it to be gloopy is to flour the cheese with roughly a teaspoon of flour.

Shred and fork tuna on top of pasta. Pour the sauce on this. Top with remaining mozzarella. Cover with foil and cook until cheese is melted.
NOTES:

If you find that its a little dry, when reheating, heat for a minute, stir with a little light margarine and or skim milk, and then heat again.

You may add other cooked or canned veggies. You might also sprinkle a tsp or 2 of Parmesan on top if you prefer a stronger flavor.
