Day 21 - A Recipe

This is my Grandma's recipe for tuna noodle casserole.  Nothing fancy, but I love that it's my Grandma's.  And its simple, just like me.

Tuna Noodle Casserole


tuna noodle casserole (1)

  • 1 - 12 oz. package of noodles
  • 2 - 10.5 cans of cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 - 5-6 oz. cans of tuna
  • 1 - 15 oz. can of peas (you can use a smaller can)
  • lots of shredded cheese, whatever kind you like
  • French's French Fried Onions or crushed up Lay's Potato Chips
  • Nature's Seasoning or whatever your prefer
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Cook the noodles as directed on the package.  Whatever kind you like.  I normally use rotini, but I decided to use bowties instead.
  3. Put cooked noodles in a casserole dish.

  5. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  6. After 15-20 minutes remove from over and add French’s French Fried Onions or crushed up Lay’s Potato Chips (Lay’s are what my Grandma originally used, I think I learned about French’s from my Mom) and lots of cheese.
  7. Then put back in the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Oh man.. that looks SO good. But, I confess.. I'd pretty much eat ANYTHING that has farfalle noodles in it. They're my favorite. (Is that weird, considering pretty much all noodles taste the same?)

I love tuna noodle!!!

I usually use egg noodles when I make it. And I use seasoned bread crumbs on top. And I add lots of cheese in with the noodles :)
