Gluten Free Creamy Cheesy Tuna Noodle Skillet
I love how easy  Gluten Free Cheesy Tuna Noodle Helper Skillet is. It is another one of my favorite easy skillet dinners, and almost as easy as Tuna Helper.

We almost always have the ingredients for this skillet in the cupboard saving a trip to the grocery store.

This works great with gluten free brown rice noodles or regular pasta, I've made it both ways. Tuna's so inexpensive and  we can do to slash our grocery budgets a good thing, I know so many of you are in the same boat.

Even though this is a budget friendly dinner it's full of flavor and something I would make regardless of if we were on a budget or not because it's just that good.

Are you ready to make Gluten Free Cheesy Tuna Helper Skillet?

In a large skillet with a lid melt 1 tablespoon butter and add 1/2 an onion diced. Sauté until onion starts to turn brown and caramelize.
This incorporates a lot of flavor into the pasta.
Add 1 clove minced garlic, 4 diced carrots, 3 diced stalks celery, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 7 ounces canned tuna in water drained.
Mix until well combined.
Add 16 ounce gluten free brown rice macaroni noodles or regular macaroni noodles for non gluten free, 4 cups good quality chicken broth and 1 cup milk or half and half.
Mix until well combined. Bring to a simmer and cover.  Cook for about 12 minutes or until pasta is almost tender.
Add 2 cups fresh or frozen peas and stir until peas are warm.
Add 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese and stir until the cheese is melted.
Have a taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
