Tuna Noodle Casserole

It was getting cooler around here and it made me want to make some nice warm comfort foods. Number one on my list was Tuna Noodle Casserole. This is my mother in-laws recipe and my whole family loves it.

Here is what you will need:

1 Box Elbow Macaroni (16 oz)
2 Onions
4 Cans of Solid White Albacore Tuna in water (6 oz)
4 Cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup (10.5 oz)
2 Slice's of Velveeta Cheese
2 Cups Milk
Pepper to Taste
Olive Oil
Potato Chips on top

Put water in a pan with about a tablespoon of olive oil bring to a boil add your elbow noodles. Cook noodles till they are soft.

Get another pan out and on the stove. Cut up the 2 onions. Put about a tablespoon of olive oil in the pan with the onions and cook till they are soft.

Oh the hubby just loves the smell of the cooking onions!

Now to the onions add:
4 cans of Cream of Mushrooms Soup
4 cans of Tuna
2 cups of milk
pepper to taste

Stir it and make it all warm and happy.

To the nice warm happy sauce cube the Velveeta Cheese into it. Stir till melted.

By now our noodles are done. Drain and put into your 9 X 13 cassarole pan (I use one I bought from Pampered Chef years ago and love).

Now on the noodles pour in the sauce and stir together.

If you like brake up the potato chips and add to the top of the casserole. We didn't have any today so ours doesn't have chips, darn!

Pre heat oven to 350 and cook for 35 minutes on middle rack.

Now serve and put a smile on everyones face.
