Cheesy Rotini and Tuna

Ok, I will preface this by saying that I used to have an addiction to Tuna helper back in college. I ate the stuff every day. Later on while doing WW, I would make it and make it the "light" way, but it still wasnt that fantastic for you.

Well this recipe blows tuna helper out of the water. I made this Monday night and I love it! It is one of the best things I have made in a while and reminds me of tuna helper. This is a good one to post too as Im sure some of you avoid meat on Fridays during lent. Enjoy!

2 cups tri-coloured fusilli pasta, uncooked
2 cans (120 g each) white tuna in water, drained, flaked
3 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained
165 g VELVEETA Process Cheese Product, cut up (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup light sour cream

COOK pasta as directed on package.
MEANWHILE, mix all remaining ingredients in 2-qt. microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 3 to 4 min. or until heated through, stirring after 2 min.
DRAIN pasta; place in serving bowl. Add tuna mixture; mix lightly.

This came from the website if anyone is interested!
