How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Heat olive oil in large saute pan over medium heat. Add veggies to pan and season with salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash. Stir, and cover. Allow to cook for several minutes, stirring occasionally.Remember, they will cook a bit more while baking in the casserole so this is just up to your personal preference as to how crisp or soft you'd like them. Once the veggies are cooked, remove from heat and set aside.
  • As they cook, cook pasta according to directions. Generally a minute or two less than recommended is good as they too will cook more in further steps. Drain pasta & set aside.
  • In a medium-large pot melt butter over medium heat, add flour and stir occasionally for about one minute, or until flour is absorbed. Then whisk in milk, about a half cup at a time. Cook for three minutes, whisking occasionally, until it thickens somewhat. Add Emeril's Essence to taste. Then, add about 2 cups of the cheese, veggies, and tuna and stir. Remove from heat and add pasta, mix well, then pour into casserole dish.
  • Top with remaining cheese and crushed potato chips. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until top reaches a light golden brown.
  • Enjoy!

    Hay, nice combo here. I like all the fresh stuff. As super fresh tuna is half the price of canned and twice as good I'll use fresh and see how we go. Should be delicious. RJ
