Homemade Tuna Alfredo Helper

I'm much more willing to try out alfredo recipes now that I have made it homemade and know how different the flavor is. I thought that this was a great idea because I actually really like the Tuna Helpers, I just know that they cannot be good for you with all that preservatives and "natural flavorings" in it. This is super simple. I already had pretty much everything on hand to make it, too!

What you need:
  • 1 can tuna, packed in oil (I used a 12 oz.)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Fettuccine, cooked al dente
  • Parmesan cheese, for serving
  1. Cook garlic in butter for 1 minute.
  2. Add tuna, peas, heavy cream, and fettuccine.
  3. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Then top with Parmesan.

Isn't homemade Alfredo sauce the bomb? (Do people even still say that?!) LOVE it - will never go back to bottled stuff! I never thought to make homemade Tuna Helper with it! :)
