Art of Cooking and Tuna Casserole Recipe

I’m sharing thoughts on the “art of cooking” and Tuna Casserole recipe, a twist on the classic using ricotta cheese, peas, green onion, and Parmesan cheese.

When you hear your boys (or young men) say, “Mom! How can I make this recipe?” it makes a mama’s heart sing! This week is the last week of summer for our family to all be together, and being short on time, I whipped up a Tuna Casserole. I need to get back into the habit of using my crock pot (starting early in the morning), but on this day, I waited until the last minute. I wanted a recipe of substance, and I didn’t want to go to the store, so I looked through my fridge and pantry and remembered my own mama’s tuna casserole recipe. With heavy white sauce, white pasta, and cheddar cheese on top it’s comfort food indeed, tasty, but so unhealthy. This is where I love how my kids are educated with food (and I really wasn’t growing up, which was the norm for my generation). They love DeLallo’s whole wheat pasta, and we all agree there is nothing quite like the flavor. That’s all they talk about now! :)

Last minute cooking.

Cooking at the end of the day, sometimes I feel myself spiraling down. I want to put something healthy on the table, yet tasty, and I don’t want to waste time or money on ingredients. I’m not happy with myself when I wait until the last minute to prepare dinner for my family, but sometimes this {life} happens. I’m always giddy when my meal turns out.
