Nikki's World Famous Tuna Casserole

Okay. Maybe it's not "world famous" but I really like it. This is super cheap to make and super good to eat. Now, you will notice in Nikki's recipe she says that we should crunch some chips up for the topping. I don't usually have chips in my house so I used bread crumbs which turned out nice. What's that? You want to know why I don't have chips? Is is because she is so healthy you ask yourself? No, it's because I am a hog and if there are chips in my house they last about ten minutes before me and Mini Me (aka Meredith) get our hands on them and eat them up. So anyhow if find yourself without chips try some bread crumbs or just leave off the topping. It's good like that too. But the chips version is the best in my humble opinion.

Cook 4-5 oz. wide egg noodles
Combine 1/2 cup mayo with 1/2 cup milk
Stir in one can of condensed cream of celery soup (you can also use cream of mushroom)
Add one cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1/2 tsp garlic salt
Stir in cooked pasta and one can of tuna
Pour into a casserole dish
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes
Remove lid, add crunched potato chips as a topping and bake 5 more minutes uncovered.


  1. Ok question?? Can I use any kind of noodle or do I have to use the wide egg noodle because I have all of this stuff at home (low fat of course because of Jeff) but not egg noodles... and to do bread crumbs how long do I have to let the bread dry out or do you just pull apart the bread and put it on the casserole....Oh wait I have chips to use... never mind I got away with buying some fatty potato chips :)

  2. The only other noodle I have used is bow tie. I don't really feel like it would matter. I think you can change it up. You can't go wrong with this one. It's easy and it's good.
