Tuna Alfredo

1 6oz block of cream cheese
1/2 c butter
1 12oz can of evaporated milk
1 T minced garlic (more or less to taste, but we like a LOT of garlic)
1/8 tsp black pepper
Optional: 2 T lemon balm pesto
1/4 c grated parmesan cheese
1 small head of broccoli, steamed & chopped (including stems–they’re the tastiest!)
1 6oz can of tuna
2 T capers

Place cream cheese, butter, evaporated milk, garlic, and pepper (and optional pesto) in a small slow-cooker and heat for 1-2 hours. Whisk together until incorporated, then add parmesan cheese. Just before serving, stir in broccoli, tuna and capers. Serve over hot pasta or rice.
