Easy Family Meal – Tuna Alfredo

I really do try to do weekly meal planning.  However, the reality is, I’m pregnant, tired, coping with awful headaches, and often don’t feel like cooking anything by the time dinner comes around.  Just for those nights, I always keep some staples for an easy family meal on hand.  One easy family meal is Tuna Alfredo.

Think “Tuna Helper, but even easier” and maybe even a touch healthier.

Pasta is a staple in my house.  Sometimes I just get the yen for a pasta dish, so it’s always around.  Alfredo sauce isn’t something that I use as often, but it’s still something good to have around.  We keep fresh broccoli around for the husband to snack on.  Tuna fish is also a canned thing that is always in our pantry.

So when that lazy night comes around, all that needs to be done is boil some whole wheat pasta to the preferred level of doneness and put another pot out for the alfredo sauce.  Then chop up some fresh broccoli and throw in a drained can of tuna fish.  By the time the pasta is done, the sauce will have simmered nicely.  Drain the pasta, dump the sauce on top, and voila!  You have an easy family meal of Tuna Alfredo.
