Serves: 4 servings
- 2 cups whole grain macaroni, uncooked
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- ½ small yellow onion, diced
- 1 stalk celery, sliced
- 1 cans of white albacore tuna, drained
- ¼ tsp granulated garlic
- ¼ tsp pepper
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
- ½ cup shredded, grass-fed cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Prepare a baking dish with a non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
Cook the macaroni in boiling water according to package instructions, until al dente.
In a medium skillet, add oil and warm over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions and celery until onions are translucent and the celery becomes tender (approximately 10 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the sautéed onions, celery, tuna, garlic, pepper, yogurt, and cheese. Mix until well-combined. Gently stir in the macaroni.
Add the tuna mixture to the baking dish and top with shredded cheese. Bake for 15 minutes covered and then remove the cover and continue baking for another 10 minutes. The cheese will be hot and bubbly.
