Today’s Menu: Baked Tuna Casserole w/ Whole Grain BreadTuna Noodle Casserole 004


I hope everyone else is having a better stretch of weather than what we are having. I’m glad the warm weather is here but we always seem to get the humidity with it, and that’s not good. Did anyone watch the guy tightrope across the Grand Canyon last night? Nerves of steel! For dinner I baked a Tuna Casserole and had some sliced Whole Grain Bread with it. Nice light dinner tonight.

I used a box of Walmart Brand Great Value Cheesy Tuna Skillet Meal as my base for the Casserole. It came with Pasta and a Cheesy Sauce Mix. I added a can of Chicken of the Sea Light Chunk Tuna in Water (10 oz.), 1 1/2 cups Water, 2 cups 2% Milk, 3 tbsp. Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter, a couple of shakes of Hungarian Paprika, and Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I mixed all those ingredients up in a 2 qt. baking dish, except the Bread Crumbs which I added to the top of the mix. I then covered it with aluminum foil and baked it at 425 degrees for about 37 minutes. It really came out very good! Nice and creamy, hearty dish. I also had a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
