Contributed by KarenB using formulazone

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Cook Temp: 375 degrees


1 & 1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese Soup, condensed

1/2 cup Cheese, cheddar, 2%, shredded

1/2 cup Mushrooms, Stems & Pieces, Canned

1 tsp Mustard, Prepared

8 oz Noodles, Egg

1 ea Onions

2/3 cup Peas, green, frozen

1/8 tsp Pepper, black

1/2 tsp Salt

1 cup Sour Cream

3 6oz can Tuna, in Water, canned


Preparation Instructions:
Cook noodles. Drain and set aside. Chop onion. Combine soup, mushrooms, onion, mustard, peas, salt, and sour cream in a bowl. Gently stir in noodles and drained tuna. Pour into 2 quart casserole dish. Bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top, and bake for remaining 15 minutes.

Special notes:
  • 1.25 cups condensed cheese soup = 1 can of campbell's soup
  • 1/2 c. mushrooms = 1 can of sliced mushrooms (actually a wee bit more but not enough to matter)
  • we mix the cheese right into the recipe instead of scattering on top
  • also if you forget to put in the pepper as I often do....sprinkling pepper over the top of the casserole works well too. :)
  • 18 oz of tuna is what this recipe calls for... there are 4.2 oz of tuna in one regular can of tuna so it takes 4 cans of tuna to actually make this recipe.
