    Caroline Cooks's Note:

    My 2 sons grew up on this casserole. Young children, especially like this. Not spicy, but creamy. The ingredients are usually in everyone's pantry, hence the title. LOL

      Inexpensive quick meal. Doubled peas and tuna and added 1/4chopped onion. Topped with crushed croutons since I was out of corn flakes and crackers. Needs more flavor. I might add garlic next time. Thank you!

      I didn't have macaroni for a regular tuna casserole, so using rice instead sounded like a nice idea. I used cream of mushroom soup. I wanted to use the remainder of cheddar cheese I had, but didn't. Decided to use the only crackers I had (Ritz). That added a bit of a sweet taste, but it didn't hurt this dish's possibilities with me. It's a keeper. I'll have to try it using buttery crackers or topping it with cheddar cheese. Thanks for posting!
