I didn’t have the energy (read: tinatamad ako!) to cook something complicated for dinner earlier tonight, but I also didn’t want to resort to canned or processed food. With my husband’s love for pasta in mind, I decided to prepare the no-brainer but still sinful baked macaroni. To make it healthier, I mixed light canned tuna with the 3-cheese tomato sauce, lots of garlic and onions. (Yeah right, healthy nga, dami naman kakainin!:P)
After topping the macaroni and tomato sauce mixture with LOTS of quick-melt cheese, I popped the pan into the oven for a couple of minutes, and this was the gooey, mouth-watering result:
I loved the toasted cheese part – it lent a nice crunch to the dish (and also kept the dish from being too gooey, though that’s not such a bad thing!). I prepared a couple of slices of garlic bread too – the perfect partner to this simple to prepare dish that’s a meal in itself.
Needless to say, my husband and I almost finished the whole thing 🙂
