Cheesy Tuna Pasta Recipe

Cheesy Tuna Pasta Recipe 036 (Mobile)

This Recipe is one of my versions of good old fashioned Tuna Casserole. However, I am not baking this version. I am just using a simple stove top method to create an extra Cheesy, Tuna Pasta dish.

This is easy to throw together because you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry and refrigerator. It is really a simple weeknight family dinner or maybe a quick weekend lunch. I incorporated more Cheese into this one just so it has more appeal to the kids and teens. Put Cheese on anything and they will eat it!

Seriously, Tuna and Cheese are a great combination and the Wide Egg Noodles are a perfect vessel to carry these flavors.

When planning your weekly menu, purchase ingredients to make this for your family one evening. It is a change of pace from meat and potatoes and with its simplicity, everyone is sure to enjoy it.

2.  Cook over low heat until the Velveeta Cheese just starts to melt, then stir in the Colby Jack Cheese. Let it cook for a few minutes so the Cheese can continue to melt.

3. Next stir in the Tuna and give your Pepper Mill a few good turns over the Cheese Sauce.

4. Cover the Sauce and let it cook for a bit longer to incorporate all the flavors and ensure all the gooey Cheese is melted. Keep giving it a good stir every now and then so the Sauce doesn’t stick or burn on the bottom of the pan. This Sauce is meant to be thick and Cheesy, but if your Sauce is getting a bit too thick during the cooking process, just add a bit more Milk.  Now, while the Sauce is finishing up, cook your Pasta Noodles as directed on the package.

5. Drain the Noodles and add them back to the pan that you cooked them in. Pour the Sauce over the Noodles and stir well. As you can see, it is ooey gooey Cheesy!
