I always used my mother'r 'recipe', feel free to add or change any of the ingredients.
One box of mac and cheese, one can of cream of chicken soup, 2 cans tuna (drained well), one can peas with carrots (drained well), salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, milk and butter/margarine.


Cook the mac noodles and drain well. In a large bowl, mix the cheese powder that came with the mac and cheese, the can of soup, and one can of milk. You can add the butter/margarine in the amount on the mac and cheese label if you like. Stir all of these well, then add the seasonings to taste. Then mix in the tuna and peas/carrots.

Pour all into a greased casserole dish. If desired, top with well crushed saltine crackers or corn flakes cereal.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, till bubbly and topping is golden.

You can add canned mushrooms, corn, green beans, etc, whatever your family likes. The soup can be any of the cream soups, even the low salt or low fat types.

Here's how I've always made it and sometimes add half of a 4 ounce can of diced jalapenos or diced green chilies to spice it up ;-)

1 can Condensed Cream of Celery Soup


1/2 cup milk
1 cup celery, finely diced
2 (5 ounce) cans water packed tuna, drained
8 oz egg noodles
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded, more for topping if desired

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cook pasta al dente according to package directions, drain, and mix with the other ingredients in a baking dish and bake, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes.

I'm looking for a recipe for tuna noodle casserole made with condensed tomato soup that my mom made every Friday during Lent in the 1960s. Anyone remember that one?

Yes, my mom made it too. Make a 1 lb bag of noodles (al dente) and set aside. Mix together 1 can of Campbells tomato soup, 1 can Campbells Cream of Mushroom soup, 2 cans of milk. 2-4 can of flaked all-white tuna (well drained.) Use onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper to taste. Combine noodles with the soup mixture and pour into 9" X 13" well-buttered casserole dish. Top with bread crumbs if you want (my mom did not.) Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until heated through. Now that I am an adult I like to spice it up with a good dose of Sambal Oeleck. Happy eating:)
