Microwave tuna special for two

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

Microwave tuna special for two

4 cups water
2 cups dry Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Wide Noodles
1 envelope (2.6 ounces) tuna, packed in water
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
1 tablespoon low-sodium teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup canned peeled, sliced water chestnuts
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Nonstick cooking spray
1/4 cup canned rice noodles

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Add noodles and cook until tender, about 8–10 minutes. Drain noodles well, and place in a small mixing bowl. In a small wire strainer, rinse tuna under cool water to remove some of the sodium. Drain well by pressing on the tuna with a fork or spatula. Combine tuna, soup, peas, teriyaki sauce, black pepper, and water chestnuts with noodles, stirring with a spoon. Spray a small microwave-safe casserole with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon mixture into dish evenly. Heat in microwave on high for about 4 minutes until hot. Remove from oven and sprinkle top with rice noodles.
