A MACARONI & CHEESE DELIGHT

       
    Over the years Macaroni and cheese was always a favourite dish of Janine and me. Recently I decided to have a go at a Macaroni and Cheese Casserole that I saw on a HILO box.  It turned out delicious!


DIRECTIONS


1. Stir Macaroni into 6 cups of boiling water (1 tsp. Salt) 
2. Boil rapidly for 7 to 10 minutes until macaroni is tender
3. Drain macaroni
4. Add 1/4 cup butter of margarine, 1/4 cup milk and contents of cheese packet
5. Stir until smooth and creamy over very low heat.


MACARONI AND CHEESE CASSEROLE


1 package Macaroni & Cheese
1 can 170g ( 6 oz.) tuna fish (drained)
1 can 284g (10oz.) cream of mushroom soup
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/2 tsp. salt


1. Prepare Macaroni  & Cheese as directed.
2. Add tuna fish, soup, milk, onions and salt, mix well.
3. Bake at 177oC (350oF) for 30 to 35 minutes or until thoroughly heated.


VARIATIONS


Substitute 1 cup chopped chicken, turkey, beef, pork, ham, sausages or 4 hard boiled eggs in place of tuna fish or add other vegetables.
As one can see from the picture above I went with one of the variations, the sausages. I also put some paprika on the top!:)

Renee said...

since I dont like tuna, do you think smoked sausage will go good?

Judy Haughton-James said...

Hi Renee,
Smoked sausages should be okay. I opted for sausages as I can no longer eat tuna. My twin sister and I used to eat tuna and salmon and suddenly they started making us ill. Take care and have a good week.

Hi again Michelle,
I had to use sausages as unfortunately I can't eat tuna any more. I used to enjoy it, salmon, sardines etc. and suddenly they started making me ill. Take care.

Hello there Christie,
Thanks for becoming a Follower and writing these comments. I am also not a tuna fan that is why I used one of the variations. After many years of no problems tuna, salmon and sardines suddenly started making me sick. I will definitely follow back!
