Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Tuna is now packaged in tightly sealed, vacuum-packed pouches. The flavored or plain tuna is ready to serve with no draining. These flat pouches store easily and can go anywhere.
  • Elbow macaroni, small macaroni rings or small shell pasta can be substituted for the orzo. If you can’t find the lemon pepper-flavored tuna, use regular tuna and add 1 teaspoon lemon pepper or your favorite seasoning blend.
  • Regular Havarti or any cheese can be used in place of the dilled Havarti cheese.
