Creamy Tuna Casserole

creamy tuna casserole

These egg noodles are tossed in one delicious tuna cream sauce! French fried onion chips and cheese make a great addition as there’re broiled until melty and crunchy. Tuna fish flakes is a great way to incorporate fish into a meal especially for those kiddos who may not be that big of fish eaters. 

Not only is this recipe a great way to use up some of your pantry items and incorporate some veggies and fish into your meal, but this happens to be an incredibly easy and tasty meal. My little boys finished up there portions with this stuff! This could also be a very versatile meal, as you can use any short pasta for the egg noodles and potato chips for the french fried onion pieces, whatever you think will work as a great substitute for ingredients that you may not have on hand, so feel free to work on your creativity because you never know what you can create:) However don’t stray to much with creativity and substitutions because this version is one tasty one.
