Tuna Casserole

Tuna casserole last night. YUM! It’s a Barnes family recipe, though it could have come off the back of the cereal box, I’m not quite sure.

Bag or half bag of cooked egg noodles

two cans tuna

mayo or miracle whip

½ c. milk or just eyeball it for moisture as this recipe is very forgiving

cream of mushroom soup or celery or hell whatever cream soup you want, though
chicken clashes with the tuna, I have to say


red or green pepper

peas, celery, mushrooms, whatever veggies you want, frozen spinach even works well in this

Salt, pepper, a touch of cayenne and garlic power

Mix all together and make sure is a good consistency

Top with cheese, I use cheddar, but parm works, or motz-cheddar mix, whatever you like. (Maybe this is why I can make the same dish but it never tastes the same twice!)

Put in pan and bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.

J made fried taters to go with, which were excellent. We’re gonna get fat together I swear. :) Problem with having two good cooks who like to eat in proximity to each other. Valentine’s Day was obscene. Fake-baked eggplant parmesan ziti, anti-pasta and banana-strawberry dessert. We cooked all day. Actually a really fun time. Gotta love culinary adventures with your honey! :)
