Tuna Casserole

This dinner is a winner! It's quick, it's easy, and kids love it. Well, MY kids love it. And, more importantly, my hubby loved it. I mean, what's not to love about creamy, cheesy noodles with tuna?
Tuna Casserole
2 c. dry pasta (I used macaroni)
2 c. frozen veggies (I used peas)
1 (10 oz.) can cream of mushroom, chicken, or celery soup (or cheddar cheese soup)
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. sour cream
2 cans tuna, drained
1 c. grated cheese
2 t. onion powder
1 t. garlic powder
squirt of mustard (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
2 c. french fried onions

Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain. Mix pasta together with all ingredients except french fried onions. Spread into a greased 2-quart baking dish.
Top with french fried onions.
Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes.
This was seriously so easy to throw together. Plus, most of these ingredients are common foods that we often already have around the house.
I actually used a 14 oz. can of salmon instead of the tuna and it was delicious. You could also use canned chicken, too. You could also just omit the meat altogether and increase the grated cheese to 2 cups. Enjoy!
