Remember Mom's tuna casserole? This version is just as satisfying, but it's made with today's health-conscious moms in mind. Substitutions were made to reduce clories and fat. (recipe from "Healthy Homestyle Cooking" by Evelyn Tribole)

April 24, 2009...Yum, I made this for lunch today and everyone liked it. I saute 1/4 of a red pepper in the pan with the onions as I did not use the pimientos. Also instead using 1/2 of a can of evaporated milk, I used skim with 1 1/2 teaspoons of corn starch added to it. Add just a little black pepper and your ready to serve. I'll be making this again. Made for *Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup 2009* game

- 3⁄4 cup evaporated skim milk
