Tuna And Macaroni Casserole


It's quick, it's easy and satisfyingly good. This was my late husband's favorite. So, I had to make it at least once a week. AND, if we didn't have potato chips in the pantry, he would run out to get a bag so I could make this. Now, I use whatever I have on hand: crushed crackers, nacho chips, croutons, etc. so each time it's a bit different.

Step 1

Cook macaroni in semi-boiling water until tender. Don't overcook or macaroni will be mushy. When done, drain only. Do not rinse.

Step 2

Add all the ingredients saving 1/2 cup of the crushed chips for the topping. Spoon all into an 8 X 8 buttered casserole dish. Top with remaining crushed chips. Bake for 30 minutes.

If you use any thing like crushed crackers or croutons for your topping, mix it with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of melted butter before you put it on top so it will brown nicely.
