How to make Tuna Helper Better

This is an easy meal when you are in a pinch. We use the oven to make this instead of the box directions.

Box of Tuna Helper
2 cans of chunky albacore tuna (drained)
1-1/3 Cups cold milk
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 small 4 oz. can of sliced mushrooms (drained)
1/4 chopped red bell pepper
3 chopped scallions
1/2 cup frozen peas
Grated Parmesan cheese and also grated block Parmesan or both (Or whatever cheese you like)
Dash of oil

1/2 cup of Panko either with herbs or plain
4 TBSP butter

In salted water boil the box spaghetti noodles for exactly 12 minutes then strain.
Add the sauce package to the cold milk and dry white wine and stir.
Add everything but the Panko and butter to a 2 1/2 Qt. covered Corning ware oven proof pan and mix well.
In a fry pan meat the butter and turn off the heat. Add the Panko so the Panko absorbs the butter but does not brown. Layer the Panko on top.

In a 425° oven center rack cook covered for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and cook another 30 minutes.
