Did you ever think Kraft Dinner could look classy? I know “Kraft Dinner” and “classy” shouldn’t really be used in a sentence together… ever… but behold! The Pasta Diaries is going back to it’s roots with a budget recipe, starring White Cheddar KD. Sometimes you’ve just gotta work with what you’ve got, right?
White Cheddar KD (and the usual ingredients you need to cook it)
1 cup of frozen peas
Can of tuna, drained
1 clove of garlic, minced
I’m going to go ahead and assume you all know how to cook Kraft Dinner. If you don’t, I’m going to go ahead and assume that you’ve had a personal chef cooking for you your entire life. Must be nice. Directions are on the side of the box.
Basically, when it comes time to mixing all of your regular KD ingredients together, also mix in the can of tuna, clove of garlic, and frozen peas. Stir it all together like you normally would, and BAM! You’ve just made your KD a bit more substantial. The portion seriously seems to double once the tuna is added, which makes this a cheap, filling, and semi-nutritious meal.
