Tuna Casserole

Tonight it was Tuna Casserole! The kids are kinda hit-or-miss on this dish. One day they love it, next time they act like it's poison!! I always think it's delicious.... and I am NOT a tuna (or any fish, for that matter) person. I think the garlic, potato chips & cheese help to make this fantastic (and completely unhealthy! LOL)

Let's take a look at your ingredients:

Egg noodles, tuna, onion, milk, cream of mushroom with garlic, peas & carrots, shredded cheese & potato chips!

Put everything but the chips & noodles in a bowl together:

Then boil up the egg noodles until done, then drain them. Add them to the bowl & mix well.
Pour this all into an 8x8 pan (I'll give doubling instructions if you're more of a 9x13 family!).

Crush up a bunch of potato chips all over the top of it.

Some people cook with wine so they can take a sip here & there while in the kitchen.... I'm more of a chip girl myself! I'll admit I had one (or a few) while making this dish!

Now top it all with some more cheese & pop it into the oven!

Now that it's in the oven you should check on that baby you've been neglecting (and by you I mean ME!)

Helloooooooo gorgeous!

(Yes, I have the Ove-Glove! You know you're jealous!)

Dig in & enjoy! Even if you're not a tuna casserole lover I think you'll change your mind on this one! And if you get through it & take that first bite & decide you don't love it... well, it's nothing a little hot sauce won't fix!!

Ohhhh the steamy goodness!

Tuna Casserole:

1/2 a bag of egg noodles (6 oz)
1/8 cup diced onion
1 cup shredded cheddar or cheddar/jack, divided
3/4 cup frozen peas & carrots
1 6-oz can of tuna, drained
1 can cream of mushroom with roasted garlic
1/4 cup milk
potato chips

Preheat oven to 425.

Boil up some water to cook the egg noodles. Drain after cooking.

While the noodles are going mix onion, 3/4 cup of cheese, veggies, tuna, soup & milk in a medium bowl. Add cooked noodles. Give it all a good mixing.

Pour into an 8x8 baking dish, Top with crushed potato chip. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake 15-20 minutes, until cheese is good & melted & just starts to brown.

***For 9x13 pan just double everything, but use 1 can cream mushroom with roasted garlic & just plain old cream of mushroom for the second can!
