    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.

Expert Tips

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