Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 T. Flour, all-purpose or bread
2 C. Cream or half and half

Melt the butter over very low heat, whisk in flour and stir for about a minute. Add roughly a quarter of the cream and whisk to blend, slowly add the remaining cream stirring constantly.

Cook for about 5 minutes or until thickened, then add the vegetables. Cook a few more minutes before adding the tuna, pour sauce over noodles and mix well.

2 pieces sourdough bread, run in food processor or blender to make breadcrumbs

2 T. butter, melt and mixed with breadcrumbs.
