We enjoyed this nice easy variation of tuna hot dish with a denser texture for lunch today. I also appreciate that all the ingredients are handy. I topped ours with chopped red pepper to add just a bit of crunch. Thanks ~*Laci*~ for posting. Made for PAC Fall '08.

Well I made this yesterday with a few changes due to what I had on hand. I used homemade egg noodles, 2 cans of tuna(drained) and 2 10.5 oz cans of Cream of Mushroom soup. The whole family loved it!!!! This one is a keeper. Thank your DH for sharing Laci.
