Tuna macaroni and cheese is one of my guilty pleasures. It’s such an easy meal to whip up. And I always have the ingredients needed to make it on hand. You should give it a try, I think you’ll like it too!
This recipe uses the good old stuff from your childhood. Blue box macaroni and cheese. What’s funny is I didn’t even like this stuff growing up but I do now. My sister loved it though and now I see why.
I always buy a big box so it makes enough for my kids and I to have seconds or thirds.
While the blue box macaroni and cheese is good all on its own I really like adding stuff to it especially if I’m trying to make it a meal and stretch it out.
Today, we’ll be adding onion and celery to it. Sometimes I just add a small can of peas though as that’s what my mom would do growing up and it was good. There are so many possibilities with this yummy recipe.
How to make tuna macaroni and cheese
Heat up butter in a pot over medium heat.
Once the butter is melted add the celery and onion.
While the veggies are sauteeing cook the pasta according to the directions on the back of the box.
Once the pasta is done drain it and add it to the pot with the veggies.
Then add the cheese packet, milk and tuna. Stir well to make sure everything is well combined. Season with a few cracks of black pepper is desired.
That was so easy. You can totally experiment with it though. How do you dress up your macaroni and cheese? I’d love to know. Let me know in the comments below.
