Today’s Menu: It’s our first fall feeling day here in Ohio and I wanted good

and warm comfort food and what better than a nice

Tuna noodle casserole. Makes some great leftovers

for lunch or even a second dinner. Served with

7 Grain Harvest Bread Roll and a couple of boiled

Red Potatoes! Too good!


* 1 (8 oz) bag of Ronzoni Healthy Harvest  Egg Noodles
* 1 (6 oz) can of tuna, liquid removed
* 2 tbsp of All-Purpose Flour
* 1 cup of 2% Milk
* 2 tbsp of butter
* 1 cup of Cheddar cheese (sharp), shredded
* 1 tsp of salt (this step is optional)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2 qt casserole dish with cooking spray. Boil your noodles in a large pot of water (salted) until “al dente”, then drain. Add butter, flour and salt in a medium sized saucepan. Blend until the butter is melted and remaining ingredients are mixed well. Then, stir in your milk. Continue until the sauce thickens (this will usually take place by the time the mixture comes to a boil). Add the cheese, and stir until melted and the mixture is blended well. Finally add the noodles and tuna and stir. Apply evenly into the casserole dish.Sprinkle lightly with shredded Cheese and Bread Crumbs on top. Bake for 30 minutes, and serve.

1 Lb. uncooked Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Cup of Hot Water
1/4 Cup of Milk
1 Box of Good Earth Med. Chicken, which includes:
100 % Whole Grain Angel Hair Pasta
Creamy Sauce w/Olive Oil
Mediterranean Seasoning w/Tomatoes
Seasoned Whole Wheat Flour

*Fill 2 quart saucepan 2/3 full of water.Heat to boiling and add Pasta. Gently boil uncovered 5 minutes,
stirring occasionally. While water is heating and pasta cooking prepare the Chicken.
*Cut Chicken Breast into 3 or 4 slices.
*Empty Seasoned Flour into a medium bowl or food storage bag. Coat Chicken pieces with the flour.
*Heat Olive oil in a 10 inch skillet over medium high heat. Carefully add Chicken to hot oil and
cook 2 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown.
*Reduce heat to medium carefully stir in hot water, milk, Creamy Sauce, and Mediterranean Seasoning
until well blended. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Simmer uncovered about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until Chicken is no longer pink in center (sauce will be thin).
