READY IN: 35mins


  • 1
    tablespoon butter
  • 12
    onion, chopped
  • 1
    (225 g) package macaroni and cheese mix, like Kraft, prepared according to box directions
  • butter (for mac and cheese)
  • milk (for mac and cheese)
  • 1
    (170 g) can tuna in water, drained
  • 1
    (400 g) can chopped tomatoes, drained
  • salt and pepper


  • Begin by boiling water for mac and cheese.
  • While that boils, sauté onions in butter.
  • Once onions are cooked to medium/well, add can of tuna (which has been drained).
  • Cook for a minute or two, stirring.
  • Add canned chopped tomatoes, stir and let simmer on a very low setting for about 5 minutes while you finish mac and cheese. Do not overcook as you'll lose the moisture and you don't want that to happen. Cover pan if you like.
  • Prepare mac and cheese according to box directions.
  • Place completed macaroni & cheese along with tuna mixture into a bowl, add salt and pepper (if desired) and combine.
  • Serve with veggies and sliced bread and butter.
