My husband wasn't eating dinner with us tonight, so I decided to make the girls a meal that I loved as a kid. My husband doesn't like tuna or tomatoes, so this is a perfect dinner for when he is not home. The girls couldn't get enough and we have now made it several times for lunches. Is it a bad thing when your husband is pickier than your kids?
Simple Tuna Noodle Casserole
1 box elbow macaroni, cooked
2 cans (5 oz each) tuna, drained
1 can peas
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can turkey gravy
1 cup safe bread crumbs or crushed safe potato chips
Combine the macaroni, tuna, peas, tomatoes and gravy. Transfer the mixture to a sprayed 9x13 baking dish. Top with the bread crumbs. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
