Becky's Quick & Easy Special Stove Top Tuna Casserole

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by BecR2400

A quick, easy one pan meal that won't heat up the kitchen on those hot summer days! Kid friendly, if you omit the capers and use the lemon juice option vs. the wine. We like ours topped with Parmesan cheese at the table. Hope you enjoy.

Wunnerful, wunnerful comfort food, not reserved for summer only. This turned into a two pan preparation, as I prepared the pasta (used fusilli) then added milk, 1 egg, and cheddar cheese, and then the can of mushroom soup. In the other, a large skillet, I sauteed 1/2 cup diced onion plus 1 tbsp dried onion, 1 celery stalk diced, and then added 2 cups each baby spinach and baby bok choy, which I chopped. Added some white wine, 1 cup peas, pepper, capers, and sauteed till greens were wilted. Added this to the pasta pot and combined. Sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top. This was so good I know I'll make it again. Wunnerful, or have I said that already. Thanks for your posting, BecR
