I am freezing just watching all these amazing Olympic skiers fly down those snowy Canadian mountains. They are all such talented athletes and I applaud each and every one. They definitely eat their Wheaties. I wanted a big dish of comfort food to warm me up while watching TV this week. I found this recipe on the back of a box of Kroger elbow macaroni and thought I would be as brave as those Olympian athletes and take a chance on this recipe. I was able to put this together in record breaking time so it is certainly worthy of a GOLD medal.
Hot Tuna Salad
1 cup elbow macaroni, uncooked
1 can tuna (6 1/8 oz) drained
2 hard cooked eggs, chopped (I personally did not use the eggs)
4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups celery, sliced diagonally
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Prepare macaroni according to package directions; drain.
toss together with remaining ingredients and place in a 2-quart dish.
Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes.
Refrigerate any leftovers.
Makes 3 to 4 servings.
