Easy but bland needed something. I added garlic powder and little lemon pepper

I have made this for years. But I also use drained can veggies, peas or carrots & peas, whatever you like. I also add a can of cream of celery soup, a bit of extra milk, until you get desired creamy consistency, and also a sm can of mushrooms or sliced black olives & bump the tuna up to 2 cans. All canned items drained well, heat thru & serve! Big Hit!

This has been a "GO TO" staple in our house for many years, with a little different approach. Instead of "Frozen" vegetables, (drained) canned mixed vegetables without potatoes was used. Just drop the drained vegetables into the macaroni just before draining it. The time in the boiling water will heat the vegetables. Drain the add tuna and remaining ingredients in the package. My kids used to ask for this at least once a week.


Check the nutritional information on the box of mac and cheese, and the crackers and you should be ready to go. If you need the information on the vegetables, check that package also. In this case it is all at your fingertips, if you take the time to do the calculations.
