Easy Tuna Noodle Casserole

Basic Ingredients:
  • 1 box Macaroni & Cheese
  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 can of Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • frozen peas
Bonus Ingredients:
  • breadcrumbs
  • parmesan cheese
Basic Instructions: Prepare package of macaroni as instructed on the box (I highly recommend the "lighter" version with less butter & more milk). Stir in soup & tuna.  You can warm it up a little more on the stovetop and eat right away if you're super hungry, but I recommend following the next few steps.

Bonus: While boiling the noodles, I recommend adding peas and cooking them together in the same pot of water.  Add as many or as few peas as you like - other veggies might be good, too.  After mixing the cheese sauce, tuna, and soup, place mixture into a casserole dish.  Top with bread crumbs and/or Parmesan cheese and bake at about 350 for about 30 minutes (or until bubbly and starting to change color).

Cost Breakdown:
Cream of Chicken/Mushroom$1.20

Serve with buttered bread & milk for a meal for 4 under $5!
