Cheesy Pasta Surprise

Posted by: Lorien Carrillo - - June 16, 1999

1 lb bag of small elbow macaroni
1/2-1 lb cheddar (or your preference) cheese, shredded or small cubes
1/4-1/2 cup milk
1 can (or small bag frozen) whole kernel corn, drained
1 can (or small bag frozen) peas, drained
2 cans tuna, drained

Boil macaroni until desired doneness. Drain and place back into pot. Turn burner to medium-low heat and add cheese, stirring and folding gently until almost melted. Add milk as needed during melting process for creamier texture and easier melting. Add veggies and tuna and continue mixing until all ingredients are heated and cheese is fully melted.

Take a small birdie sized portion for each of your birds and place it in their bowls and let it cool before serving. They'll love it! And you don't have to make something else for you and the kids. Now if you want, you can mix in sprouts, pellets, or whatever you'd like to add. I don't...they love it just like this.
