Tasty Tuna Macaroni

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Mrs. Regan

My fiance and I love cooking for each other, even though most of the time we end up cooking up a box of mac 'n cheese. I try to change things up a bit by adding things I have on hand. This is one I came up with one night that ended up being very good and I make it over and over on those nights when I don't have a lot of time and I don't want to make just another box of macaroni.

Super quick and inexpensive meal. One thing I would do different would be to add the tuna at the last minute. I think by cooking the tuna it made the dish a little too fishy for me. I loved the addition of the mushrooms and tomato. Thanks for posting!
