Taco Tuna Macaroni

Pat Duran


My sil was coming over and my refrigerator was bare. So the next stop was to look in the pantry. I had pasta, tuna, some French's Onion rings, spices , cream of chicken soup and can of peas; I was hoping for corn.
I put it all together and it was delicious! Just a little left for tomorrow's lunch.
