Ingredients

    8 ounces egg noodles (I used whole wheat egg noodles)

    2 tablespoons olive oil

    cup chopped yellow onion

    cup chopped carrots

    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups fat-free milk

    cup (4 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened

    2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

    teaspoon salt

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    1 cup frozen peas, thawed

    cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided

    2 (5-ounce) cans albacore tuna in water, drained and flaked

    Cooking spray

Directions

Preheat broiler.

Cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and carrot; cook 6 minutes or until carrots are almost tender, stirring occasionally.

Sprinkle with flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in milk; cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly with a whisk until slightly thick. Stir in cream cheese, mustard, salt, and pepper; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly

Remove pan from heat. Stir in noodles, peas, cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and tuna.
Spoon mixture into a shallow broiler-safe 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray; top with remaining cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Broil 3 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
