Tex Mex Tuna Casserole - 5 or 6 Points

Recipe By :Richard Simmons
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Casseroles Mexican


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups tuna in water, canned -- drained and flaked
2 cups lowfat cottage cheese
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup canned chili peppers -- diced
2 tablespoons salsa
3 cups cooked noodles -- drained
12 saltine crackers -- crumbled
1/8 cup cashews, dry-roasted -- unsalted, chopped

PORTION PATROL: Remember the days when you used to eat nuts by
the handful? Well the good news is that you can still have your nuts and
eat them too, but only if you are on constant PORTION PATROL. 6 nuts
= 1 fat card. Don't forget it!

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In large bowl, combine tuna, cottage cheese, sour cream, red onion,
chiles, salsa and noodles.

3. Turn into 2-quart casserole dish coated with non-stick spray.

4. Combine crackers and cashews and sprinkle over top.

5. Bake uncovered 30 minutes. Makes 8 servings.

NOTE: The amount of vegetable in this recipe works out to one
tablespoon per person, therefore you don't need to use a vegie card for
such a small amount. If you wanted to bring it up to 1 vegie card, you
could serve this with 1/3 cup of steamed vegetables per person.

* Recipe called for 12 unsalted, dry roasted cashews. MC is based on cup
size.
