3- Ingredient Tuna Casserole
Yes, you can actually pull together a delicious, nutritious, and easy dinner with just a few pantry staples! Skip a trip to the grocery store and use what’s already in your kitchen to serve your family this cozy 3-Ingredient Tuna Casserole at the end of a busy fall day!
Well, here we are…right smack in the middle of September! So long summer vacations, and hello back-to-school routines! I must admit — I’m enjoying every minute of the quieter house, cooler temps, and structured days. My boys do so much better with a predictable schedule (and so do I)!
This 3-Ingredient Tuna Casserole recipe originally came from a reader named Sam, who was a member of the 5-Day Meal Planning Challenge that I hosted about a month ago. We were sharing some of our go-to weeknight meals in the Facebook group and Sam mentioned that this is one of her family’s favorites.
I knew instantly that it would be a hit with my own crew of mac-and-cheese lovers, so I gave it a try the very next week. I had everything in my kitchen and I didn’t even need to run to the grocery store!
The tuna casserole was obviously a great success around our dinner table, so Sam said that I could share it with YOU as well! After all, when we’re knee-deep in the hustle of back-to-school season, we could all use a simple one dish comfort food meal to make our lives just a little bit easier!
Sam’s original recipe calls for just 3 ingredients: Horizon Organic Cheddar Cheesy Deluxe Mac and Cheese, a bag of frozen peas, and a couple of cans of tuna. That’s it! You get carbs, protein, and veggies all in one dish — so you don’t even have to worry about the sides!
This is my boys’ #1 favorite mac and cheese on the market, which is why I recently stocked up when the boxes were on sale at my local grocery store (2 for $5). Since Horizon’s mac and cheese is made with organic pasta and organic cheese, It’s an affordable dish that I can feel good about feeding my family. Plus, the delicious taste even encourages my boys to eat their seafood and veggies! Anything coated in that cheesy, creamy sauce is bound to be amazing!
I hope that you enjoy this simple, wholesome, and easy weeknight dinner — just in time for fall comfort food, busy back-to-school evenings, and precious family time together around the table!
