1 bag egg noodles
4 cans tuna
1/2 onion diced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Your choice of green vegetable ( I used peas. Other options are spinach, broccoli, zucchini etc)
shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
Optional: Crushed Ritz Crackers
Boil your egg noodles for the amount of time required on the packet. Drain the water and set it aside.
Preheat oven to 350F. In a big bowl mix together with a wooden spoon the tuna, onion, pasta, vegetable and cream of mushroom soup. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Lay it out on a pyrex and sprinkle cheese on top. Optional - What I like to do, to add a slight crunch is crush a few ritz crackers on top
Place in oven for about 10 - 15 minutes or until the cheese on top is nicely melted.
Your done, the entire meal is in that one pyrex. You have your vegetables, your starch and the meat. Can also be done with shredded chicken or shredded beef.
