Updated Oct 18, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 box Tuna Helper™ creamy broccoli
  • 2 medium carrots, cut into 1/8-inch slices (1 cup)
  • 2 cans (5 oz each) tuna, drained
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed, drained
  • 1 jar (4.5 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, heat milk, hot water, butter, uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Tuna Helper box), carrots and tuna to boiling over high heat, stirring occasionally.
  • 2
    Reduce heat; cover and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Stir in peas and mushrooms. Cover; simmer about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat; let stand covered 5 minutes (sauce will thicken as it stands).

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Tuna also comes in pouches, which are easy to use because the tuna doesn't need to be drained.
