Tuna and Pasta Cheddar Melt

Tuna and Pasta Cheddar Melt recipe. marissabaker.wordpress.comI think I found the original for this recipe on a site for Campbell’s soup, but I changed its ingredients to add carrots and use this cream soup substitute from Center Cut Cook instead of canned soup. Haven’t tried the soup yet in any of my other recipes that call for cream of chicken, but I plan to. The texture is perfect, though the color and taste is a bit different.
