Salt and pepper to taste

Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 4 Quart
Grease your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
Cook the noodles according to package instructions, until just a little underdone. Drain well and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix the soup and milk until well blended and creamy. Stir in the well drained tuna, cheese, parsley and salt and pepper until well combined. Add the noodles and toss gently to combine.
Scrape the mixture evenly into your slow cooker.
Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours or on HIGH for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until heated through, stirring occasionally if possible.
Twenty minutes before the end of cooking time, stir in the peas and reduce heat to LOW.
Sprinkle with a little paprika, if desired, before serving.
