MMMMM! I needed something fast and easy after church tonite and this fit the bill! I tossed in a can of corn for good measure and topped it off with some black pepper. Forgot to add the 1/4 can of water but it didnt need it. My 3 yr old ate 2 bowls so this warrants a 5 star in my book!

For just 3 ingredients this was good! I liked that it was fast and homemade. I had to add peas because tuna and noodles isn't great until peas are added. The kids liked this too.

My mom makes something similar just a few differences. She adds no water but instead adds peas. I have always loved it as a kid. Can be served warm once made and leftovers can be served cold if you like its still wonderful.
