Old School Tuna Noodle Casserole

Serving size: 1-quart casserole, or 8x8 dish

Ingredients:

  • 1 (10.5 oz) can of cream of mushroom condensed soup
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 (5 oz.) cans of chunk light tuna, drained and flaked
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 cups dry egg noodles (roughly half of a 12 oz. bag)
  • 1 cup potato chips, crumbled
  • ½ cup yellow onion, diced (optional)
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. OPTIONAL: If you want onions in your casserole, sauté onions in a pan with butter or olive oil until cooked and translucent.
