Tuna Noodle Skillet

Last night was one of those nights.  I got up early to get ahead of the day but as the day progressed I got two steps behind.  As mid-afternoon approached, I realized I wasn't going to have enough time to prepare what I had planned for dinner.  Tim's swim schedule threw me off.  Oh well, just one of those days.

Luckily, I remembered a recipe I found for a quick skillet dinner.   Everyone likes tuna -  a big plus at my house.  I had all the ingredient's in the pantry.  Yes, I keep jars of marinara sauce and Alfredo sauce on hand.  I have kids that like snacks of pasta with sauce.  I digress.  Anyway, for this recipe all you need is two jars of your favorite Alfredo sauce, some chicken broth, tuna, noodles, pepper, and frozen peas.  That's it.  Everything is cooked in one large skillet - another big plus.  Total time from start to finish is 30 minutes.

Voila - dinner is done.  Doesn't it look delicious?    It taste wonderful.  Everyone enjoyed the dish and went back for seconds.  Ah - another dinner success:)

  3. Cannot say that I have ever made a Tuna Noodle Skillet but it certainly looks like a dish the kids would really enjoy!
    Thank you for the inspirational recipe,

  4. That's a real classic casserole, isn't it? I sometimes made the oven version years ago, but it's been a long long time. Now I prefer the tuna in salad. But it's nice to remember!
