Tuna and Noodles

After years of living in this house, it came as a huge surprise that my darling daughter called one night and left this question on our answering machine - Mom, how do you make Tuna and Noodles?

Now, never mind that we ate this in the house at least once a week while she was growing up.  Never mind, that she was almost always in the kitchen with me when I would fix it. So after I got though laughing about it, I called her back. Only to find out that when she couldn't reach me, she called her brother. And he knew how to make it.

So here it is - my recipe for Tuna and Noodles

What you'll need

1 pound bag of noodles
1 family size can of Cream of Mushroom soup
2 - 6 ounce cans of Tuna in water
Small can of mushrooms (optional)
Several slices of American cheese or a chunk of Velveeta

Place a large pot filled with water on to boil. Dump in the noodles once the water starts boiling and cook for however long is specified on the back of the package.

Meanwhile, dump a can of Cream of mushroom soup into a large saucepan. Add an equal amount of water or milk. Add in the tuna and heat on medium low heat until the mixture is free of lumps.

If you want, now is the time to add that extra can of mushrooms and torn pieces of sliced cheese. Let the cheese melt in the mix.

Drain the noodles and place them back in the large pot. Pour the tuna/soup mixture over the noodles and stir.

It's now ready to serve. Add a salad and hearty bread and you not only have a great meal that all kids love, but one that's very economical too.

Other variations you can try:

A cup or frozen peas
A cup of mixed veggies
Substitute cooked chicken, turkey or salmon
