Sun is shining, birds are singing and my container pots look wonderful... I love the spring it is my favorite time of the year.. Today is a work day and this week will be hectic with only having a four day week and a ton of stuff to do... we had a great Easter weekend,, got lots done around the house , a son got engaged, and celebrated a good friends birthday.. The friends daughter and husband were there (newlyweds they are) and she brought a delicious white and chocolate cake.. so Danielle do not forget to send me the recipe so that I can post it on the blog.. I am not a huge fan of Tuna Casserole as I would much rather have Salmon but this is a great economical meal and quick and easy..
- 1 1/2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 small green bell pepper, cored, seeded and finely chopped
- 1 cup sliced white mushrooms (about 6 to 8 mushrooms)
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed, dried thyme
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1x12 ounce can reduced-fat evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- 1x5 ounce can light water-pack tuna, drained and flaked
- 3 cups NO YOLKS noodles (prefer Extra Broad), cooked according to package directions
- 1/3 cup canned French fried onion rings
- Melt the margarine in a large nonstick skillet. Add onion, bell pepper and mushrooms. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Sprinkle flour over vegetables and stir to mix in. Add salt, thyme and pepper; stir again.
- Gradually add evaporated milk, stirring constantly, scraping up any browned bits in bottom of skillet. Add peas. Simmer for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, or until milk is slightly thickened. Stir in tuna and NO YOLKS noodles. Spoon noodle mixture into a large, shallow baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
- Sprinkle onion rings over noodles. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 20 minutes or until onion rings and noodles are lightly browned. Remove from oven and let set for a minute before serving.
To warm a large bowl for serving pasta, put the serving bowl in the sink and place the colander in it. When the pasta is done, pour it into the colander, allowing the hot water to drain into the bowl. Pull the colander out of the serving bowl and let the pasta drain. Empty the hot water from the serving bowl and pour the pasta into the warm bowl.
