Want to make a "semi" homemade tuna helper, any tips?

i say "semi" because i will still be using a jar of alfredo sauce. but i want the flavor to be more parmesan-y than alfredo-y. if i add the pasta, some water, some of the jarred sauce & seasonings, the tuna, and a crapload of grated parmesan in a skillet together and cook you think it'll come out right?

  • I use a block cream cheese melted in a a little milk and then thickened with parm cheese to make my own Alfredo sauce. I could see this making a GREAT tuna helper with some egg noodles, broccoli and tuna... ooooo! Then bake it with bread crumbs on top!.... I may have to try this.

  • To make my own Alfredo I warm one of those little cartons of heavy whipping cream (don't let I boil). while that's warming, I separate 6 egg yolks from whites (save whites for an egg white omelet tomorrow) when the cream is almost to a boil take a spoonful at a time and temper the eggs so they don't scramble, then add the yolks to the cream, add parmesan cheese to taste. It's my fave way to make alfredo. But_Mommies recipe sounds delish too!
