Angie's Tuna Casserole

April 6, 2009

Okay, I've never been a Tuna Casserole girl, but my husband loves it and because this came from my good friend Angie, I decided to give it a whirl. I'll be making it this week, so I am trying it out at the same time you are. Let me know what you think!


1, 16 oz box pasta (like shells, bow ties, or egg noodles)
1/2 c frozen peas
2 cans tuna fish
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/4-1/2 c sour cream (if you have-ta use mayo, you can)
dash of cayenne pepper (1/8-1/4 tsp)
a few shakes of garlic salt (1/2 tsp?)
1 c cheddar cheese
1/4 c fresh cilantro
crumpled potato chips

To Prepare:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook pasta according to package directions, include frozen peas. Drain.
3. In a bowl, mix tuna, soup, sour cream, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, cheese, and cilantro. Add pasta mix. Season to taste (additional salt and/or black pepper).
4. Transfer to 9 X 13 casserole dish.

To Freeze:
- Cover tightly with plastic wrap or foil.

To Serve:
- Crumple potato chips by hand and sprinkle evenly over the top.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes if thawed (40-50 minutes if frozen), or until heated through.

I made this and it was fantastic! Def. a crowd pleaser. . .ALL 4 of my kids ate it and wanted seconds! That like never happens. So thanks! =) I made dinner rolls in my bread maker to go with it, so I totally felt like a Martha Stewart momma (except she would have made the rolls from scratch).
