Dorm Room Cheesy Tuna and Noodles

Dorm Room Cheesy Tuna and Noodles


"Cheap, easy, cheesy tuna and noodles for college students on a shoe string budget. If you really wanna dress it up, you can add thinly sliced almonds or sunflower seeds for more flavor and texture. Of course this defeats the purpose of it being cheap and easy, but at least it's more enjoyable."

This was a great idea! I didn't have tuna and American on hand so I used a can of chicken and cheddar cheese. DELICIOUS! I've never thought of adding cheese before. I gave 4 stars because of the changes I made, but it was a 5 star taste! I think I'll add some cooked spinach or broccoli next time and make it a complete 1-dish meal.

What's better is to crush up cheeze-its,dice some pickles, diced onions,add 2 slices of cheese and the tuna. It's also good with diced tomatoes on top. It becomes thick and is great with crackers.


quick, easy and tasty. the only difference i made was that i used canned chicken instead of the tuna because most people i know dont like warm tuna
