Tuna Casserole

I think this has to be an American favorite.

Ingredients

1 Bag of Egg Noodles (Don't fret if you don't have egg noodles and noodle will do.)
2 Cans of Tuna ( Drained)
2 Cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 Cans of Milk (Just dump the milk into the soup cans when they are empty to measure LOL)
1 Block of Velveeta Cheese ( If you are out of Velveeta just use 1 1/2 C.'s of Shredded)
1 Pkg. of Saltine Crackers (Potato chips work great if you are out of crackers.)

First things first, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Boil your water for your egg noodles. Cook them however long the package says ( I like to under cook mine just a tad.) When you are ready, drain the noodles and set them aside.

Next, take a small saucepan and dump the 2 cans of soup and 2 cans of milk in it. Put it on low and keep stirring it until it's very smooth and creamy.

Just when it turns smooth, cut up 3/4 of the block of Velveeta (into little chunks) and dump it in. Keep stirring it until it is all melted in together. Please make sure you leave it on low or you will end up with a scorched pan.The last thing you wanna do is clean up a super messy kitchen!

Now for the fun part. Take out a 9x13 Pyrex casserole dish ( or a metal pan if you don't have Pyrex) spray it with just a little Pam ( it works wonders for cleaning up.) Spread a few noodles on the bottom and then take a gravy ladle and pour in a little of the soup mixture. Keep rotating noodles and then soup. My grandpa and grandma taught me to do this and it makes every casserole much juicier. Only fill the dish 3/4 of the way full.

If you have extra put it in a small baking dish and you can have it for lunch tomorrow. That is if there is any left.

Now If you are using Velveeta cut the last 1/4 up in tiny little chunks and throw it on top. If you have a package of shredded cheese just spread some more across the top. The cheese is my favorite part.

Last, open your bag of crackers and crumble them on top. Potato chips work great too if you are out of Saltines.

Cover your dish with foil and stick it in the oven for a good 30 minutes. We like ours juiiiiiicyyyy!

When the timer goes off pull it out and serve it up.

My family and friends have absolutely no problem just eating the casserole. If you like serve it with a salad and some of your favorite bread.

With Fall just around the corner and having been sick, there is nothing quite as delicious as comfort food.

Now the answer to your question is yes I have pictures and of course in true Cute Couponer fashion I can't get them to load either.  Don't know if it's me or the camera. I know what your thinking and your probably correct it's me... Watch for the pictures to be added to all the recipe posts this week. I kidnapped a camera expert to do it.


Happy Cooking,
