Easy Peasy Toodle Noodles

Ingredients (estimated, as usual):

  • 1 jar Alfredo sauce (we like Bertoli) with about 1/3 c water added
  • 1.5 c sweet peas
  • 2 cans tuna in water
  • 1 cup shredded packaged mozzarella and provolone mix
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • a dash of dried mustard
  • a couple of shakes of red pepper flakes
  • 1 package whole wheat, no yolk egg noodles
  • 1/2 package (about 2 cups) herbed croutons or stuffing mix
  • 1/4c freshly grated parmesan cheese

Instructions:

  1. In a medium size bowl, mix first nine ingredients together until well blended.
  2. Cook noodles according to package instructions, until just firm. Drain, return to pot.
  3. In pot, combine sauce mix with noodles.
  4. Spread noodle mixture into a 9×13 glass pan.
  5. Combine herb stuffing mix with about 1/4c water to barely moisten. Mix well, and spread over top of noodles.
  6. Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan.
  7. Bake at 400 until stuffing is golden brown and slightly crispy to touch. About 20-30 minutes. To save energy, do not preheat.

Pair this with a hearty roll and a green salad for a complete evening meal.
