Default Tuna Noodle Casserole

There are many versions of this recipe, this is the version I use. I have only made it with potato chips once. Instead of the chips, I crush a sleeve of saltine crackers, stir that into a stick of melted butter then sprinkle on top. Lots of crunch. Yummy.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

1 cup dry elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
4 tablespoons butter
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1 can tuna, drained
1 can drained peas (optional)
1 cup crushed potato chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Stir the butter into the hot noodles. In a buttered baking dish stir together the soup and milk. Add the remaining ingredients except the potato chips. Sprinkle the potato chips on top and bake 25 minutes.

NOTE: If you don't want to used canned peas, you can substitute 2 cups of cooked peas.

Pretty much the way I've made it, Granny, but have used bread crumbs sprinkled on top.

I imagine that a topping of crackers and a stick of butter would taste MUCH better, LOL!

Here's my recipe for Chicken Noodle Casserole, but if desired, you can substitute 3 small cans of tuna in place of the chicken!


Chicken Noodle Casserole.
Ingredients;
1/4 cup cooking oil
Small onion, chopped.
1 cup chopped green pepper.
3 or 4 stocks celery, chopped.
3 cloves garlic, chopped.
1-1/2 to 2 cups leftover chicken, diced or chopped.
1 can cream of mushroom soup.
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, partially thawed.
1/2lb spaghetti, broken in half.
2 bags shreadded cheddar cheese. Reserve 3/4lbs of cheese for top of casserole.
1 cup chicken stock.
1/ teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon thyme.


Directions;

Prehet oven to about 375 degrees.

Grease or spray with cooking spray, a meduim size baking dish or pan.

Heat oil in large skillet. Add onion, green pepper, celery and chopped garlic. Sautee over medium heat until almost soft.

Boil enoil water in medium size pot. Add broken spaghetti and cook until aldente` (not soft). Drain, but do not rinse.

Add all remaining ingredients in large mixing bowl. Add sauteed onion mixture. Stir until all ingredients are incoporated.

Pour mixture into prepared baking dish or pan. Place rack at upper third. Bake casserole until bubbly and cheese on top is almost golden brown around the edges.

Cool slightly before serving. Enjoy.

Caution;

Note that I DID NOT mention any salt. That is because I felt that there is enough salt in the mixture from the mushroom soup and the cheese.

This is a rather quick dish to fix. and it is very flavorful! A good way to use up leftover chicken and other leftover stuff that you might have on hand in the fridge to add to it.


Note;

You can substitute TUNA or LEFTOVER TURKEY in place of the chicken, if desired.

I used to put live bread crumbs mixed with a little butter & parm. But now, I just put shredded cheddar cheese on top.
