Tuna melt is a classic diner favorite. We took all that flavor and threw it into a tasty pasta supper. 

Tuna and pasta cheese melt

When I'm having a bad day I always want something that reminds me of growing up. I love that feeling of eating a dish that just reminds you of being a kid again. That is how I feel anytime I have this dish. It's super simple to throw together and totally reminds me of being 10 years old.
