A combination of canned tuna, pimento or red bell peppers with cream of celery soup mixed with pasta. This is a family favorite, an easy and delicious meal. Serve with a salad and biscuits makes a complete meal.



  • 1 cup chopped or sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 2 10 1/2 oz. cans cream of celery soup
  • 2 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 7 oz. cans tuna, drained/flaked
  • 4 oz. jar sliced pimento
  • 16 oz. seashell pasta, cooked/thoroughly drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 3-quart casserole dish.

In casserole dish, combine cooked pasta and tuna mixture. Top with buttered crumbs.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned.
