Try a New Recipe Tuesday~Tuna Noodle Casserole

In general, my family does not like tuna casseroles.  But, this tuna casserole recipe is the exception.  It was passed down to me from my mother, who got it from her mother.

Tuna Noodle Casserole
Cook 12 oz. package of medium noodles (we use egg noodles) using package directions, drain.
Combine noodles, two cans of tuna, drained, 1/2 cup + mayonnaise, 1 cup chopped celery, 1/3 cup chopped onion, 1/4 cup chopped green pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Blend one 10 1/2 ounce condensed cream of celery soup and 1/2 cup milk, heat on stove.  Add 1 cup sharp shredded cheese, heat and stir until cheese is melted.  Add soup mixture to noodle mixture.  I like to add frozen peas, about 2 cups.

Put into a 2 qt. casserole dish.  Bake uncovered  at 425 for 20 minutes or until hot.

Tuna noodle casserole has to be one of my very favorite foods EVER. And your casserole looks delicious!

That does look very good. I remember my mom making this when I was a child and just loving it. My husband and son do not like it so I haven't had it in forever. Perhaps I should make it for myself??? I came over from Lisa's Try A New Recipe Tuesday.

I have never been a fan of tuna casserole, but I just may have to try this recipe and see if my mind can be changed from my childhood. :-) Thanks for linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday."
