Bow Tie Pasta

This is a great freezer meal. There is almost no cooking involved if you just want to prepare it and freeze it. My family loves this one. I promise it does NOT taste like tuna. Steve was even fooled the first time and just the other day my oldest son believed it was chicken. I don't want to hear of anyone skipping this cause they don't like tuna, just try it!

8 ounces bow tie pasta
1 (10.75 ounce) can of cream of chicken soup
1 (12 ounce) can of evaporated milk
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese
6 slices of American Cheese (I cut it back to 4 and it was still good)
1 can tuna - drained
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 pack Ritz crackers

Cook pasta in salted water for 2 minutes less than the shortest time recommended on the package. Mix together soup, milk and onion. Break American Cheese into small pieces. Stir in cheese, tuna, peas and bow ties. Place in gallon freezer bag. Label and freeze.

To serve: Thaw. Place in greased baking dish. Stir. Top with buttered bread or cracker crumbs. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
