A comfort food classic ready in about 30 minutes! You can make this creamy pasta dish, that's like a homemade tuna helper, with only your stove top. And, it even includes a buttery breadcrumb topping!
If you don't have fresh or leftover bread, you can substitute 3/4 cup store-bought bread crumbs (preferably panko).
To finish the pasta and sauce around the same time, check how long your pasta needs to cook and time accordingly; for pastas that take about 12 minutes, starting it around when you are adding the milk to the sauce works well for me. If needed, you can always start the pasta cooking a little later in the process, since the sauce will keep well on the stove with the heat off (just whisk the sauce occasionally).
