Recipe Notes

What is more comforting than mac & cheese? One day when I was starting a pan full, my husband suggested we add some tuna to it for more protein. He loved it and I have made it this way ever since.
I have had a column in 4 Arizona small town newspapers for 7 years, and include a recipe with each column. This mac & cheese recipe was very well received by my readers who are always looking for quick and easy recipes because most of them work and have limited time for cooking.
