Not Your Mother's Tuna Casserole
Serves 4

1 box Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, Premium White Cheddar
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can white solid albacore tuna, drained
1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup skim milk
1 cup saltine cracker crumbs
1 cup Kraft 2% Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Boil water to make boxed mac and cheese. Cook the pasta and drain. My advice is to cook it a little less than the box calls for. In the meantime, chop your onion and open your can of tuna. In a medium sized skillet, melt your butter and oil together. Add the onion and saute till onion is translucent. Now add the tuna using your spatula to chop it up. Now add the milk, butter and sauce packet from the box and cook till nice and thick. Add the pasta back in and mix thoroughly. In a small bowl, mix the shredded cheese and cracker crumbs together.
Lightly grease a 2 quart casserole dish and place the mac and cheese mixture in there. Now top with cracker crumb mixture and bake till hot and bubbly, about 15 minutes.
