Today being Friday we try and got meatless (for at least one meal). Today at lunch I really wanted something that was tuna-y but not to overpowering. Thought of tuna melts but knew the munchkins would not have it. Tuna casserole...ditto. hmm. How about a tuna ala king of sorts. It turned out absolutely divine and rich all the same. Hence the title of this post.

1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 (7 oz) tuna with water (drained)
1/2 round Boursin cheese
10 oz noodles (I used bow-ties), cooked
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Saute peppers and mushrooms. Stir in flour. Cook until bubbly. Stir in milk and broth. Thicken slightly. Stir in cheese. Add tuna. Heat thoroughly. Stir in noodles.
