Kowboys' Tuna Helper

The Menu:
Kowboys' Tuna Helper

(see how fine those broccoli pieces are on the right. That is what you want!)

The Original Recipe:
My family loves Tuna Helper (along with any other "helper" dish out there), but they have so much non-essential ingredients in them. I was going to make my Tuna Noodle Casserole tonight, but I had some leftover fresh broccoli in the 'fridge. I decided to make my version of Tuna Helper. It worked out Wonderfully!! My whole family LOVED it!

Kowboys' Tuna Helper

1 cup whole grain spiral noodles
1 large can albacore tuna
2 cups water
1/2 cup milk
1 can low sodium (no msg) cream of mushroom soup
1 tsp. dried onion flakes
1 small head broccoli
1/2 cup parmasean cheese

Chop broccoli with hand chopper into minced pieces. In large pan combine soup, water, tuna, broccoli, noodles, and onion. Cover and simmer on low for 15 minutes. Add milk and cheese, stirring to combine, until melted and heated through. Serve.
*You can also make your own "cream of mushroom" soup, if you would like.
