Nothing fancy here, but really great comfort food from my husband's Grandma. Good old tuna casserole with potato chips on top.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Combine mushroom soup, milk, and tuna in a saucepan over medium heat; cook until well blended and warmed through, about 5 minutes. Pour mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish; add noodles and mix well. Top noodles with cheese food and sprinkle potato chips over cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling, 30 to 45 minutes.

It was great, thanks for giving me a place to start! I did make some modifications: * Whole Wheat Rotini instead of egg noodles * 2 cans of tuna * Chopped onion * Chopped garlic * Shredded cheddar cheese (just kept going til I had a nice, thick layer) * Bread crumbs instead of crisps * Fish Marsala spice mix Served with a side of broccoli and Carlsberg Elephant beer. My first Tuna Casserole! Read More

"Nothing fancy" is an understatement. This is the blandest, driest tuna casserole I've ever eaten. I was looking for a tuna casserole recipe I used to make years ago. This isn't it. Read More

This is a great base recipe. I skip the milk and potato chips. Not necessary. I use shredded mild cheddar to top with instead of velveeta. I add thawed frozen peas into the mix and voila!! Just like Mom used to make. Read More

I was looking for a recipe that tasted like my Mom's. This is it; delicious and easy to make. Only changes were to add an additional can of condensed cream of celery soup a cup of chopped onions and a cup of frozen peas. Read More

This was so easy and good. My husband loved it too. I didn't have Cream of Mushroom soup so I substituted a can of New England Clam Chowder. For the topping I used shredded cheddar and crushed Sea Salt & Pepper chips. Yum! Read More

I added 1/4 cup of onions, increased the cheese to 3 slices and used a 9x9 baking dish. It was awesome! Just like I remember having when mom used to make it. I'm saving this recipe for sure. Read More

Easy and good. Based on other reviewer's recommendations I made some changes. Doubled the tuna added one cup of frozen peas a large handful of sliced crimini mushrooms and used probably 2 cups of grated extra old cheddar instead of processed cheese and panko bread crumbs instead of chips. Read More
