Tuna Casserole with Macaroni Salad and Baked Tomatoes

Serving baked tomatoes is a great way to get your family to eat their vegetables. The cheese combined with the dressing is the perfect blend to complement the tomatoes, and make them less acidy and easy to enjoy.

One box of dry macaroni will make double the amount of cooked macaroni Refrigerate the remaining macaroni to use when making macaroni salad recipe below. Open the cans of tuna and drain them into a colander. Dump the tuna into a large mixing bowl and then add the soup and three cups of the cooked macaroni. Gently stir to combine, and then turn out into the prepared baking pan. Top the casserole with the cheese and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove the casserole from the oven and top with the French-friend onions, return to oven and cook an additional 10 minutes. Serve hot.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a broiling pan by spraying both parts with non-stick cooking spray. Wash the tomatoes and then cut them in half. Place them cut-side up onto the slotted top of the broiling pan. Drizzle the dressing on the tomatoes, and then top them with the cheese. Bake for 15 minutes and then remove the pan.
