I use the same ingredients but not the same ratio, I use 12 oz. bag of egg noodles, cooked of course. 3 cans albacore tuna 2, cans of peas, 2 cans mushroom soup, 1 can milk, I don't measure so I crumble 2 handfuls of plain potato chips into casserole, I use unsalted but that is up to you. A handful grated cheese and then bake about 45 minutes,until bubbly hot, then cover top with with chips and then cheese, bake until cheese melt and serve. Everyone loves it! It's not dry and better ratio of noodles to tuna and peas.

If you are a tuna lover this will delight your taste buds! i had to use macroni, cause when i got ready to make it I found my pantry empty of noodles. Makes a very quick lunch, took very littel time to make. I will for sure add this to my recipe book. Thanks Karen!

Watch the MSG in Cream of Musroom Soup, and all canned soups for that matter. the MSG makes my body ache!

Whoa- this is a blast from the past! I doubled the cream of mushroom soup and milk since previous reviewers found it a bit dry, but it didn't have enough of a tuna taste because of that! So I recommend doubling the tuna as well if you do double the above ingredients. I also used a combo of plain corn flakes, bread crumbs, and butter since I didn't have chips. Added olives, too! Really tasty- thank you for sharing! :)

Putting the chips on top reminded me of the classic tuna casserole I use to make when fat did not matter! This was great. Family loved it. I used a whole can of peas and added some cheddar cheese.

I made the recipe exact to the directions, only I added two small cans of tuna. It was a HUGE hit! My husband loved it! My suggestion; it still wasn't really enough tuna. I'll be sure to add 3 cans next time!

Blast from the past, learned to make this as an 11yr. old with a single dad to take to a pot luck dinner by PTA. Still as good as it was then but did use a whole soup can of milk

I followed this recipe to a tee then rechecked it 3 more times. There was not enough liquids in this so I added another can of soup and about a 1/2 cup more milk. It was still too dry. I ended up throwing it all away and went out for dinner. It sure didn't bring back any memories for me! I will try a different recipe next time. If I could I'd give this recipe a zero.

I followed this recipe to the tee and rechecked it 3 times.. There was not enough liquid in it. I added another can of soup and another 1/2 cup of milk and it was still dry. It barely had any taste of the tuna. I ended up throwing the entire thing away. I sure wasn't bringing back any memories of mom for me. will try different recipe next time! would give this a zero if I could.
