When your recipe calls for a can of condensed soup, just make your own! This makes the equivalent of one can of condensed soup (10.5 ounces). Note the suggested variations that can be made to this recipe.

This worked great! I was craving tuna casserole and I realized I didn't have any cream of (anything) soup. I actually preferred this to the canned stuff! Looks like Campbell's has lost a customer! Thanks for posting!
