1/2 Photos of My 70s Childhood Tuna Casserole : >
Kozmic Blues's Note:
Simple, quick and CHEAP... as a child, this was a weekly meal in our house. Due to the fact that we were totally BROKE this week, I decided to dig up an old favorite...lol. There IS no real recipe for this, however, I tried my best to type something concrete. Tasted just like mom used to make! Some things never change...
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 (7 1/2 ounce) boxes macaroni and cheese mix
- 1/2 cup butter (not spread or tub product) or 1/2 cup margarine (not spread or tub product)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna in water, drained
- 1 (14 ounce) can peas, drained
- 1 (14 ounce) can corn, drained
- 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, divided
- breadcrumbs, for topping
- 1Preheat oven to 325°F.
- 2Cook macaroni and cheese according to package directions (I usually boil noodles for 6 minutes because casserole will bake a bit more in oven).
- 3I also add a little more milk to the mac and cheese so there is enough cheesy sauce to coat everything.
- 4After thoroughly mixing noodles with the cheese, add peas corn.
- 5Break the tuna up a bit with a fork so there aren't too many huge chunks and add it as well.
- 6Toss in half of the shredded cheese and mix well.
- 7Spoon into a large baking dish.
- 8Sprinkle with remaining cheese and breadcrumbs to taste.
- 9Heat in oven for about 20-25 minutes.
