Kittencal's Easy Tuna or Chicken Noodle Casserole

Kittencal's Easy Tuna or Chicken Noodle Casserole created by DianaEatingRichly

This is a delicious casserole that can be made using either tuna or 1-1/2 cups or more of cooked cubed chicken or even cooked turkey --- for a thinner sauce use 1 cup of milk or half and half instead of 3/4 cup, prep time includes boiling the egg noodles, if you are not a garlic-lover then you may omit the garlic powder and to zing the flavor up even more add in 1-1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice

ingredients

  • 6 ounces egg noodles

  • 14 cup pimiento, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, finely chopped

    Has anyone tried this with another kind of cream soup base? I'm allergic to mushrooms! Thanks!

    Absolutely delicious. My husband doesn’t like cream sauces. He loved this. He asked if I put breadcrumbs for the topping I told him it was crackers. He put up a thumbs up and said Nice Touch. We both had 2 big helpings. I can’t wait to try it with tuna. ?? Yum.
