A Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

When I run out of idea of what to make for dinner, I always do what is quick and easy. And on top of my easy and quick list is Tuna Casserole. I always stock any kind of Pasta, Albacore Tuna and Cream of Mushroom in my pantry, so it is very convenient to prepare this dish. In this dish, any pasta you may have in your pantry is just fine. I usually use Penne but this time since I want to make room in my freezer, I used the frozen Tortellini with cheese and spinach.

2 lbs frozen Tortellini with cheese and spinach
2 cans Cream of Mushroom
2 cans Albacore Tuna
1 medium onion
2 stalks celery
1 cup green peas
1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

1. Boil pasta in salted water for about 5 minutes or until tender.
2. Meanwhile in medium heat, saute onions and celery until tender.
3. Mix in tuna, cream of mushroom and milk. Stir until creamy.
4. Mix in green peas and 1/2 cup cheese. Stir for a minute then remove from heat.
5. Add boiled pasta and mix until incorporated.
6. Transfer to a baking dish and sprinkle top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
7. Bake in a pre-heated 375 deg. F oven for 15 minutes or until cheese on top is bubbly.
8. Serve with toast or as it is.
