This was very good and very rich.. it was a nice difference from the standard made with cheddar cheese.. the only differences is that I used regular paprika instead of Hungarian.. I can never seem to find the Hungarian kind where I live and I put crushed potato chips on top instead of the butter and saltines.. will be making again!!
One of my semi-gross guilty pleasures is Tuna Helper in the box. I'm sorry! but if you only have 20 minutes to make dinner they are wonderful! On the advice of a friend, I decided to try and make home made tuna noodle casserole. Well...as wonderful as this dish was I do have one complaint: it kind of ruined me on the box stuff! I did make a couple of changes. I forgot to grab some Velveeta at the store, but I had parmesan at the house so I just used that. I also used one whole yellow onion because I just love onions. I don't generally keep saltine crackers in the house, so I just used breadcrumbs, and I also used whole wheat penne pasta (for the first time) and I have to say it wasn't bad! My husband, who rarely gets into an uproar about anything loved this and said I HAVE to make this a regular. The best part was that it was really easy. I think the next time I make it I will just skip the step of heating the sauce ingredients seperately as the when I made this yesterday I followed the method of prep exactly and then stuck the whole thing in the fridge to heat up later. I think it would work perfectly fine. Oh thak you so very much for sharing this with us!
