Tuna Pasta Mozz Melt

image

So, I’m a big tunafish fan. I love making up a can and having a couple of sandwiches with pickles. It’s my go to snack. This recipe evolved from this love!
To start, you need:
•12oz chicken broth
•12oz water
•1 box of rotini (about 16oz)
•2 cans of tuna (5oz each)
•2 cans cream of mushroom soup
•2 cups milk
•1/2 – 1 cup mozzarella cheese (it depends on how much of a cheese-a-holic you are)

First step is to mix broth and water in a pot and cook your pasta till it is tender. You will have to stir consistently as there is not a lot of fluid compared to the amount of pasta. You won’t be draining it, so you don’t want too much liquid.
After your pasta is tender, add in your tuna, pasta and milk. Continue to stir consistently until it is well combined.
The mixture will be very liquidy at first, but will thicken as it cooks. I usually cook this on medium-high.
After the mixture has thickened to a stew-like consistency, add in your mozzarella cheese and stir.
Afterwards, enjoy!
Happy dining all!

Tuna Salad Sandwich

I’m a big tuna fan. Sadly, I am the only one in the house who likes it. No big deal, since I can make up a can, refrigerate it and nibble on it a little each day. I found this recipe this week and new I would try this immediately.
So here I am, my first day off since finding it, and lunch time rolls around….
You take 2 cans of tuna in water, 1 medium stalk of celery chopped, 1 small onion (I used half if a regular onion), 1/2 cup mayo, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and mix it all togetger. Slather some on your bread and enjoy.
I had 2 sandwiches for lunch and another 2 for my late night snack. They are delicious. I think I’ll be making this up again next weekend when my mom is in town. She is another fan of tuna salad sandwiches.
It doesn’t get much easier than these kind of recipes. Take all the ingredients, stir, eat. Too bad I didn’t find this earlier in the summer. This is a great idea for a picnic!
