---- — When my cousin, Dee, and I went to Weight Watchers, we exchanged recipes. Everyone has enjoyed this. It makes enough for four people. For Weight Watchers it is 5 points. Now don’t turn your nose up because it is a diet food. Try this. You can cut it in half for a couple of meals. If you like, add enough for a bigger brunch.


1 1⁄2 cups elbow pasta (cooked)

1 can cream of mushroom soup (regular or small)

1⁄2 cup skim milk

1  16-ounce can tuna

• Mix everything together.

•  Place in a greased microwave safe bowl.

•  Microwave on high for about 8 minutes.

•  Serve hot.
