Old Fashioned Tuna Noodle Casserole

“If you’ve lost your appetite today, I think I have it.” 😯

After scouring the internet for egg noodle recipes I came across this “Old Fashioned Tuna Noodle Casserole” recipe by SweetLittleBluebird.com.  It looked like it had all the right components for tuna casserole so I tried it out and I’m really happy with the results… soooo…  I’m swapping out my old recipe for this one instead!  It’s THAT good!

The recipe calls for onions but I only had shallots.  😛

Frozen veggies are a lifesaver!  I probably sound like a broken record but you can get a bag of them at the grocery store for a buck and they come in handy all the time!

The recipe calls for crushed potato chips layered on top but we only had Ritz crackers so I subbed that too.

It baked up wonderfully and made enough to have leftovers the next day.

You can tweak this recipe and it’ll still turn out great.  Below are the substitutions I made due to lack of ingredients, but overall I tried to follow the original recipe:

  • I used shallots instead of onions
  • I used carrots in addition to peas
  • I used crushed Ritz crackers instead of potato chips

 

You can find the VERY EASY recipe here:

Thanks for joining me! Good company always shortens the journey so I'm glad you're here. My name is Tara Benson and I'm 33 years young. I'm an energetic wife and mother with a wild imagination and a bold sense of humor. Consider me 100% right brained. I love music, art, interior design, gardening, baking, cooking, creating and hobby farming. I'm married to the best husband, Jason. It's safe to say we're opposites in many ways, but get along GREAT. We have two very intelligent and loving children, Owen (10) and Belle (4). I come from a huge family with three brothers, one sister and about a thousand others in the extended version. I'm also a mother to a mixed herd of animals (13 and counting...). I work in the mortgage industry from my home office.

We want to teach them that hard work and creativity will always payoff at the end of the day. So welcome! Stick around a while and make yourself at home. -Tara
