Dorm Room Cheesy Tuna and Noodles

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"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...

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 cracker...

Not to bad for cheap, on the fly 'dorm' food. I did mine with half a pack of seasoning (that stuff's really salty!), a lil' EVOO (yummo!), and a slice of Pepperjack cheese.

Great last minute meal! I used the cup noodles(2.25oz) and the regular size canned tuna(6oz) with 1 slice Montery Jack. The cup'o'noodles have the spices already in cup so I poured the cup of bo...

Yummy, but I would suggest using only half the seasoning packet.
