Is that 1/2 cup of milk or 1/2 a soup can of milk?

The chickpea pasta sounds super interesting.

Before surgery I kind of liked tuna casserole ... although a similar one ( Southern chicken and dumplings ) worked better post op (the fishy taste of tuna could sometimes make want to puke ( sorry) .)

Tuna still does that to me .. funny how our tastes change with surgery. I always enjoyed tuna salad pre op - in the last eight years post op I've tried it a handful of times and it never stayed put successfully for me.

I do love cream of mushroom ( i prefer my own homemade fat free version though) as flavorful a food staple and am experimenting Using it as a base for more bariatric friendly non-fattening but decadent tasting recipes.
