Weeknight meals during the school year can be a pain. With all the activities, home work, and practices there isn’t much time to get dinner on the table. Today I’m sharing an easy weeknight meal, Cheesy Tuna Casserole, that everyone in my family loves. You can make this meal ahead of time and even keep it in the fridge for a day or two before you cook it. Best it makes plenty for leftovers the next few days. I found Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers that make it even easier to send leftovers with my husband for lunch.
This will make one 9×13 casserole dish or 2 8×8 dishes. I’m not going to claim that this is the healthiest meal, but it is a crowd pleaser and with a green salad or side of veggies it is a good meal.
- 2 boxes Mac and Cheese
- 2 cans Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom Soup
- ½ cup grated cheese
- 2 small cans tuna drained
- Pre-Heat your oven to 350.
- Spray the bottom of your pan with cooking spray. You can use either one 9x13 pan or two 8x8 pans.
- Cook Mac and Cheese according to the directions on the package, increasing your milk by ¼ to ⅓ of a cup. Stir in the cream soup. Gently stir in both cans of drained tuna.
- Pour mixture into prepared pan.
- Sprinkle the top with grated cheese.
- Cook for 20 minutes or until melted and bubbly.
One of the best things about this meal is that it makes a ton and the leftovers are just as good the next day. Because we are on a super tight budget I LOVE when my husband takes leftovers to work. While I love sending leftovers, he isn’t so good about bring my Tupperware back from work. Honestly I have more luck getting Tupperware back from kids’ school lunchs. 🙂
So I have started sending my husband’s lunch in these new Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers they are plant based, perfect for the microwave, he doesn’t have to worry about bring it home because they are disposable, and I don’t have to wash them.
*Just a small tip ~ the Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat are not meant to store food in long term. Because they are plant based they will break down over time. I like to keep my casserole in the glass pan then put it in the Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat container right before my husband takes them to work.
I even have a coupon for you all! You can save a $1 and, check these out for yourself by picking up a pack of Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat Containers at your local Walmart in the food storage aisle.
