This is a very old recipe that I originally got off of the side of a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese more than 25 years ago. I make this when I tire of plain tuna macaroni and want all the "junk" back in it! LOL! When you get bored, too, this is a nice change of pace! Very easy to make. (*Since Kraft has changed their formula so much over the years, I now use Velveeta Shells and Cheese, or make homemade macaroni and cheese using the velveeta recipe.) So whatever you prefer is what you should use. HTH! :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (12 ounce) boxvelveeta macaroni shells and cheese, regular or deluxe kind or homemade if preferred
  • 1 (8 1/2 ounce) can peas, drained or size that is close
  • 1 (6 1/2 ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked
  • 1 cup Miracle Whip, mayo if preferred
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 14 cup sweet pickle relish, drained
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
  • salt


  1. Make shells and cheese according to package directions, or make your own (same amount.).
  2. Add remaining ingredients, mixing lightly. Chill.
  3. Add additional Miracle Whip (or mayo) before serving if needed.

So happy to find this recipe - I lost my copy years ago. It was a favorite when my children were growing up. It does make a nice 'change of pace'!

Bless you! I love this recipe and have made it many times over the years until I lost it. Now I have it again and I'm going to make it as soon as I get to the grocery store.
