WFMW: Mush McPuna

Mush McPuna is an institution in my family. It's super easy, cheap, marginally nutritious, did I mention cheap? And easy?

The first person to leave a comment saying, "you are what you eat," is getting their ears boxed. :)

Mush McPuna

1 box Kraft (accept no substitutes!) Mac & Cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
frozen peas
1 can tuna

While you're cooking the macaroni in one pan, cook the mushroom soup with about half the milk in another pan. Throw the cheese from the box into the soup and mix. A minute or two before the noodles are cooked, add the frozen peas. Drain the noodles and peas. Mix with the soup and add the can of tuna.

If you're feeling really fancy, crumble some potato chips on top! Mmmmm....

(Thanks, Mom, for the recipe!)

Oh, that sounds like a great variation to our tired old tuna casserole recipe! And, I like the earlier commenter's idea to do it with chicken. Great ideas!

Lots of brothers and sisters in my house this became a staple at one point.

Only difference was it consisted of:

3 boxes Mac and cheese
2 cans tuna
1 can peas

Make the M&C, mix in tuna and peas, continue to heat until it is hot, serve.

One pot cooking at its easiest.
